Crooklyn (1994). Directed by Spike Lee, 115 min., PG-13

This film is presented in conjunction with special exhibition Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design, which displays more than 60 of Academy Award–winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter’s original garments from films such as Black Panther, Do The Right Thing, Crooklyn, and Coming 2 America.


About the film
Make yourself at home with the Carmichael family as they experience one very special summer in their Brooklyn neighborhood that they’ve affectionately nicknamed “Crooklyn.” Renowned director Spike Lee fashions a bold, flavorful picture of family life that People magazine calls his “most affectionate work.”

Academy Award–nominee Alfre Woodard stars as Carolyn, a loving but fiercely independent mother who, along with her musician husband (Delroy Lindo), struggles to raise her family in difficult but often wonderful circumstances. Complemented by an energizing, vintage R&B soundtrack, this tender, colorful film is a fitting tribute to an American family.
