Crooklyn

1994 / 115min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: SPIKE LEE

CAST: ZELDA HARRIS, ALFRE WOODARD, DELROY LINDO, DAVID PATRICK KELLY

Described as a “a nose-to-the-sidewalk paean to Bedford-Stuyvesant as it was in Lee’s ‘70s youth,” by Brooklyn Magazine, Spike Lee’s period drama centers on Troy (Zelda Harris), the youngest of five children in the working class Carmichael clan, circa 1972. This gentle, semi-autobiographical tale, written with his siblings Joie and Cinque, recalls with aplomb a season of jump rope games, Knicks super-fandom and the burgeoning influence of Soul Train.

Crooklyn is part of the series Making Rent in Bed-Stuy. Click here for more info.
