Wed, Aug 24 @ 7:00 pm: Introduced by film programmer Shay Filmore

Director: Spike Lee Run Time: 107 min. Format: 35mm Rating: R Release Year: 1996

Starring: Theresa Randle, Isaiah Washington, Spike Lee, Jenifer Lewis, Debi Mazar, Peter Berg

Perhaps Spike Lee’s most underrated film, and currently out of print on home media, GIRL 6 was the first film that Spike directed without also writing the screenplay. Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) takes the screenwriting reigns here as we follow Judy (played to perfection by Teresa Randle, in what should have been a star-making performance), who on her journey to become an famous actress finds herself utilizing her performance skills as a phone sex operator.

Theresa (who also appears in MALCOLM X and JUNGLE FEVER) stars along with other Spike Lee regulars including Isaiah Washington, Debi Mazar, John Turturro, Michael Imperioli(‘s voice), Joie Lee, and Spike himself. Sprinkle in some fun cameos from Madonna, Quentin Tarantino, and Naomi Campbell plus a soundtrack of previously unreleased songs written and performed by Prince, and you get one of Spike Lee’s most debated over films.
