Spike Lee Screens Oil Spill Film in San Diego
(AP) — Spike Lee has screened his new four-hour documentary on the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and says no one from the oil giant is speaking to him. The director showed “If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise” at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in San Diego on Saturday. It airs in August on HBO. When he was asked if BP cooperated he said, “Nobody was speaking to me from BP.” A call to the BP press office wasn’t immediately returned.
