Lee

Over the last three and a half decades, Lee has built an impressive body of work that’s been both consistently provocative and groundbreaking — from 1986’s “She’s Gotta Have It” to 2018’s “BlacKkKlansman,” which earned him an Oscar for best adapted screenplay — and remarkably diverse. In addition to a wealth of films of various genres, he’s directed Nike commercials, music videos, stage shows, a video game (“NBC 2K16”) and docs about everything from Michael Jackson to Hurricane Katrina, as well as acted in more than a dozen projects. That trend continues with his two latest projects: Netflix feature “Da 5 Bloods,” about five African-American vets who return to Vietnam, and a filmed version of David Byrne’s Broadway concert show “American Utopia” for HBO Max.
