“The movie industry has long taken notice of the talent that comes out of NYU Grad Film," said NYU Grad Film Creative Director Spike Lee, "but now there is an even greater need for the link to be strengthened, hence the Purple List."

Just got the lowdown on this and it's good news for all our readers in and around the Chicagoland area.

Spike Lee will be giving a free (I said FREE) lecture in the University Library at Chicago State University located at 9501 S. King Dr (as in Martin Luther King Dr.) in Chicago on Weds Feb 8 at 6PM.

No word on what the topic of his lecture will be yet, but there will be also a Q and A following his speech, and possibly a panel with Spike and other filmmakers and cineastes.

No doubt he'll discuss something about his new film Red Hook Summer premiering this month at Sundance.

And did I mention that it's free?

    I'd love to attend and tell him to get over himself, and ask him how Quentin Tarantino was supposed to make a movie about slavery without using the "N" word. As a white guy, Django Unchained showed me more about that terrible time in our history and how poorly men can, did, and still do treat each other. Of course, as a white guy without a death wish, I'm not allowed on the south side of Chicago so I can only hope someone else asks him this stuff. He is a racist hypocrite.

    Being from Illinois myself and Spike being one of my favorite filmmakers this is the opportunity of a lifetime to actually go to Chicago State University and hear and meet a wonderful director like Mr. Lee. Can`t wait!!!!!!
