Famed Director Spike Lee wrote on his Instagram page upon releasing his latest Spike Lee Joint, “My Short Film – NEW YORK NEW YORK Is A Love Letter To It’s People. Plain And Simple.”
The short film, emotional and stark at times, makes us think about what New York was like before COVID-19. “Was it that grey?” “Where are all the busy New Yorkers?” “When have I ever seen a subway empty?”
The film opens with a bunch of landmarks and ends thanking the healthcare workers for their daily sacrifice to the city who has been struck the hardest in the entire US.
Thank you healthcare workers. Thank you Spike Lee.
