ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the filmmaker Spike Lee. Lee is a captivating, intriguing fellow. His remarkable filmmaking, as well as the controversy that seems to follow him, is always memorable, providing ample fodder for journalists. Still reeling from the death of their 2-year-old son, an Irish family of four enters the U.S. illegally via the Canadian border and makes their home in a pigeon-infested New York tenement apartment.
