The event creator says
In continuation of unveiling its newest additions to the 2015 programming schedule, DiverseArts Culture Works presents Vox & Visions on 11th!

Vox & Visions on 11th, a series of screenings curated as a celebration of cinema, music and community in the heart of Austin’s East Side, will be hosted bi-monthly at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard. The first installment begins this Tuesday, May 26th at 8:00 p.m. with the critically acclaimed Spike Lee drama, Do the Right Thing. Chairs and refreshments are welcome (but please no glass) or feel free to enjoy our seating and food trailers as you join us this summer for the many film opportunities to come.

Do the Right Thing:
"Do the Right Thing is a 1989 American drama film produced, written, and directed by Spike Lee, who also played the part of Mookie in the film. The movie tells the story of a neighborhood's simmering racial tension, which comes to a head and culminates in tragedy on the hottest day of summer.

The film was a critical and commercial success and received numerous accolades and awards, including an Academy Award nomination for Lee for Best Original Screenplay and one for Best Supporting Actor for Aiello's portrayal of Sal the pizzeria owner. In 1999, it was deemed to be "culturally significant" by the U.S. Library of Congress, and was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry, one of just six films to have this honor in their first year of eligibility."

We look forward to seeing you as we present DiverseArts Culture Works’ first Vox & Visions on 11th.!
