‘Many minds that were closed to Black Lives Matter have been opened due to the pandemic’ – Director Spike Lee

Director Spike Lee has had a busy year; his latest film, Da 5 Bloods, featured a group of African American veterans returning to Vietnam in search of a fallen comrade.

He’s also released several short films, including one investigating the striking similarities between today’s police brutality – and the themes he explored thirty years ago in his seminal movie – Do the Right Thing.

Krishnan Guru Murthy has been talking to Lee about race in America – but first he wanted to put the record straight over his celebrations – caught on video – after Joe Biden won the Presidency.
