Oscar winner Spike Lee is coming to Dubai
Oscar-winning director Spike Lee will be in Dubai in a couple of weeks for ON.DXB.
The director behind Malcolm X and BlacKkKlansman will chart his 30-year journey from his indie breakout Do The Right Thing to Oscar glory during ‘An Audience with Spike Lee’, a headline session.
As one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people, Lee has been described as a visionary, a trailblazer, a provocateur and a true American original.
When he won the Oscar in February 2019, he used his speech to try and influence the crowd ahead of the 2020 elections, saying: “Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing!”
Other stars set to make an appearance at the festival are ‘Top Boy’ actor and ‘King of Grime’ artist Kano, Actor and producer Liza Koshy, Saudi-based gamer MjrmGames and Dubai filmmaker Asri Bendacha.
The inaugural event will run from November 21-23.
