First Look: Spike Lee’s “Chiraq” Trailer Released
Amazon has debuted Spike Lee’s Chiraq trailer exactly one month before the film’s December 4 release. The project, which has attracted its share of controversy, is described by IMDB as “a modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play Lysistrata by Aristophanes, set against the backdrop of gang violence in Chicago.”
The film’s stars include Nicki Cannon, Teyonah Parris, Wesley Snipes, Samuel L. Jackson, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, and Lala Anthony—just to name a few.
In the satirical film, Parris plays Lysistrata, who spearheads a sex strike among women in the Chicago, Illinois community in hopes of putting an end to gun violence.
Chiraq‘s limited release is scheduled for December 4, after which, it will be made available via Amazon Instant Video.
