chic raq

25 and 27 August, 2019

The bold, imaginative and urgently topical film from Spike Lee relocates the ancient Greek drama ‘Lysistrata’ to the gangland wars of modern day Chicago. After the accidental murder of a young girl in a drive-by shooting, Lysistrata (Teyonah Parris) persuades the women of two rival gangs, Spartan and Trojan, to swear off sex with their men until the fighting stops. The movement goes on to inspire young women across the city and eventually the country. Chi-Raq is a vital and searing satire on American gun violence.

Spike Lee’s urgent, angry – and very sexy – midlife masterpiece
