9/14/10: Filmmaker Spike Lee

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Filmmaker Spike Lee has said he doesn't think racism can be eliminated in his lifetime, but that hasn't stopped him from pointing his camera at some of the most complex issues in American society. His body of work includes feature films like "Do the Right Thing" and "Malcolm X" and documentaries that explore race, gender and class. Lee is in Utah and he joins Doug to talk about his nearly 25 year career and about the America he sees through his lens.
