She’s Gotta Have It, US, 1986 dir. Spike Lee (84 mins., Comedy, Blu-Ray) Four years before his Oscar-nominated Do the Right Thing, Spike Lee burst onto the filmmaking scene with his frenetic and provocative debut She’s Gotta Have It. Demonstrating exactly what 80s indie cinema could be, Lee and his cinematographer Ernest R. Dickerson employed a visual flair equally inspired by Woody Allen and the French New Wave, focusing on the tale of Nola Darling, a young woman who wants to have it all and refuses to choose between her three lovers because she views monogamy as “a form of slavery.” “She’s Gotta Have It revitalized the idea of a black filmmaking that didn’t emphasize a despairing blackness as the dominant trope. Lee’s characters are black, yes, and so much more…”—Stuart Henderson, Popmatters. Doors open at 7 pm with food and beverages available for purchase from select food carts and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Music begins at 8 pm and films begin around dusk. Entry for advance ticket holders is guaranteed until 8:30 pm. Advance tickets ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee entry after 8:30 pm. A limited number of chairs are available on a first-come, firstserved basis, so feel free to bring a chair, pillow, or blanket, along with a light sweater or jacket. Advance ticket holders who arrive after 8:30 pm but are not admitted to the screening (in the case of a sell-out) may exchange their tickets for another Top Down screening. There are no refunds or exchanges for arrivals after the film begins (c. 9 pm) or for entirely missed screenings. Please, no pets or outside food or drink. Advance tickets are available at nwfilm.org: $10 general; $9 student/senior/PAM member; $7 Silver Screen Club Friend. Tickets at the door are $12 general; $11 student/senior/PAM member; $9 Silver Screen Club Friend.
