The film has themes of hatred, bigotry, police brutality and violence; all of which are sadly still relevant today.
It was nominated for two Oscars in its day and has been labelled "culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress.

TIFF also recently announced an advance screening of Quentin Tarantino's new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie.

Tickets for both screenings went on sale to the public today and regular tickets for the Spike Lee event are already sold out, but they'll have rush tickets the day of.
