By Any Means Necessary:
A Spike Lee Joints Retrospective
Lee's first feature-length documentary investigates the murders of four children in a 1963 church bombing in Alabama, a tragedy that proved to be an inciting event of the
Civil Rights movement. Lee explores the culture of racism that led to the girls’ deaths, and his extensive interviews with the still-grieving family members give heartbreaking testimony to the promise of young lives cut short. Janet Maslin of The New York Times called the film, which was nominated for an Oscar for Documentary Feature, an “immensely dignified and moving reassessment of a terrorist crime.”
