Flashback #10: Spike Lee

Spike Lee in Locarno, 1983.


This is his first overseas trip. It is his graduation thesis and, consequently, also his first feature film: Joe's Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads. In other words, the story of a barber shop which is actually a front of clandestine betting. It is the movie which made the world aware of Spike Lee and was awarded with the Pardo d’oro in 1983.
