One of my favorite filmmakers, Spike Lee, will be honoring Michael Jackson – “celebrating his life”, as he put it in an interview with The Root – publicly in Brooklyn.
Lee, who’s previously directed a video for Michael Jackson on his 1997 album ‘History’ (see IMDB) said that it would be a “joyous, celebratory” occassion, which will be organized “Brooklyn” style.
I’ve admired Lee’s work over the years – “Inside Man” remains one of my favorite movies from 2006 – and I can’t think of anybody better to celebrate Michael Jackson’s life (who would be 51 soon) than Spike Lee.
All those of you in NYC should definitely catch this. It ought to be a treat.
