Leading up to the day's of MALCOM X's release in 1992, filmmaker Spike Lee, already a household name of filmmaking fame encouraged people: «Don't go to work that day! Don't let the children go to school! Go to this movie! We have to support this film or Hollywood will have the excuse it wants.» The last bit was a retort to the battles Lee faced against the movie studio, which wanted a shorter, more commercial film. With last minute financial support from Michael Jordan and Oprah Winfrey Malcolm X was released at an epic 3 hour plus run time and has since only grown in relevance to its connection with the national conversation about race in America some 25 years later. Special 35mm presentation.
