Do the Right Thing

Do the Right Thing


HEART Film + Food

6.30pm: Delicious American food served in the Assembly Bar+Kitchen
7.15pm: Introduction by Gurj Kang to ‘Do The Right Thing’ – an award American comedy-drama starring Spike Lee, Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Samuel L. Jackson…
7.30pm: Screening of ‘Do the Right Thing’ – this film follows the simmering racial tension in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn on a hot summer Sunday. Sal Fragione opens the pizza parlor he’s owned for 25 years. The neighborhood has changed considerably in the time he’s been there and is now composed primarily of African-Americans and Hispanics. His son Pino hates it there and would like nothing better than to relocate the eatery to their own neighborhood. For Sal however, the restaurant represents something that is part of his life and sees it as a part of the community. What begins as a simple complaint by one of his customers, Buggin Out – who wonders why he has only pictures of famous Italian-Americans on the wall when most of his customers are black – eventually disintegrates into violence as frustration seemingly brings out the worst in everyone.
