Remember when you first met Mars Blackmon and Nola Darling? That was about 1986 and Mars was out begging for some action. “Please baby please. Please baby, baby please.”
It was the start of a career that has made headlines ever since.
But perhaps time has clouded the experience or maybe nothing you’ve read so far has made any sense at all. In either case, it is definitely time to head to the Edgartown library for the next four Sundays.
The subject is Spike Lee and the event is a mini-film series with double features each Sunday afternoon. This Sunday, Feb. 6, Lee’s first film, She’s Gotta Have It, with Mars and Nola engaging in a duel of sexual politics, opens the series at 1 p.m. Do The Right Thing, which won Lee the best screenplay Oscar, follows at 3 p.m.
Call 508-627-4221 for the full schedule of movies.
Due to the explicit nature of the themes explored in Lee’s films this is an adults-only event.
Refreshments will be served.
