If you didn’t catch my earlier post, Spike Lee is about to drop a new self-financed movie shot on a Sony F3 Super 35mm Video Camera entitled, Red Hook Summer , which just premiered at Sundance 2012.

Never one to shy away from controversy, when asked a question by audience member, Chris Rock, about what he would have done differently if the film was studio-backed, Spike spontaneously let loose with a fiery tirade about Hollywood and Black films.  And although it takes place in Brooklyn and Spike does reprise his character, Mookie, he makes it clear (very clear) that this is not a sequel to Do the Right Thing.

But don’t just read the news reports, watch the whole Red Hook Summer Sundance Q&A for yourself below:
