Film, from 4 Nov 2016




Loud, lurid and barnstormingly entertaining, Chi-Raq is Spike Lee’s hip-hop musical adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy, Lysistrata by Aristophanes. Set in present day Chicago’s Southside, where gang violence has got out of hand, the plot begins with a tragedy when a child is killed by a stray bullet. Lysistrata, partner of local rapper and gang leader Chi-Raq, leads a group of women in a radical solution. The message to all men is stop the violence or women will withhold sex from their partners. Featuring an all star cast including the inimitable Samuel L Jackson as narrator.
