Video: Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer Official Trailer

Spike Lee’s much anticipated Red Hook Summer has released its official trailer, the latest in his Chronicles of Brooklyn anthology. The movie revolves around a young suburban black kid from Atlanta who is sent to the Red Hook projects in Brooklyn to spend the summer with a grandfather he has never met. It was self-financed and took 18 days to film. The crew consisted substantially of NYU students, and the cast list of lesser-knowns reads like this: Clarke Peters, Jules Brown, Toni Lysaith, Nate Parker, James Ransone, Thomas Jefferson Byrd. While taking a religious tone, the film honestly resonates Lee’s indie appeal with “old home video”-styled shots and controversial topics of diversity.
