Spike Lee Debuts Red Hook Summer Film Poster
Filmmaker Spike Lee has just released the art for his upcoming film, Red Hook Summer.
The design was created by Art Sims and 11:24 Creative, masterminds behind the majority of Lee’s famous movie posters including Girl 6, Malcolm X, Jungle Fever, Summer Of Sam and more.
The latest in Lee’s Chronicles of Brooklyn (which also include She’s Gotta Have It, Do The Right Thing, Crooklyn, Clockers and He Got Game), Red Hook Summer tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who’s come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather’s constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik’s summer appears to be a total disaster—until he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he’d ever imagined.
Red Hook Summer releases nationwide on August 10.
