KINEAUX’s first monthly film screening presents two classic selections that depict escalating racial tension. Director Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing (1989) centers around gentrification in Brooklyn in the 1980s. La Haine (1995), a French film directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, looks at the racial divide between Paris and its surrounding suburbs (banlieues).

There is a $7 suggested donation, and proceeds from the screening support a fund in honor of Eric Harris, a young black man shot and killed by police earlier this year in Central City. For more information and to RSVP, visit KINEAUX’s website.
