Starting today at 11:45am EST/8:45am PST, you can watch a live stream of the Berlinale press conference for Spike Lee’s "Chi-Raq." Lee is expected to attend the conference, as well as various cast members from his latest feature.
Co-written with Kevin Willmont, the new Spike Lee joint is a modern day adaptation of Aristophanes’ ancient Greek play "Lysistrata." Teyonah Parris stars as the eponymous character, who reacts to the murder of a child by a stray bullet by organizing a group of women against the ongoing violence in Chicago’s Southside. Her efforts create a movement that challenges the ideas of race, sex and violence in America and around the world.
"Chi-Raq" is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray and can be streamed on Amazon.
