Spike Lee Chi-Raq

IMDB exclusively premiered the trailer for Spike Lee’s upcoming picture Chi-Raq. The production, which was shot on location in Chicago and first attracted a bit of controversy over its name, is a modern-day retelling of the Greek Tragedy Lysistrata.

Chi-Raq is a modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play “Lysistrata” by Aristophanes. After the murder of a child by a stray bullet, a group of women led by Lysistrata organize against the on-going violence in Chicago’s Southside creating a movement that challenges the nature of race, sex and violence in America and around the world.

The film stars actress Teyonah Parris as Lysistrata in an all-star cast that includes ick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, D.B. Sweeney, Harry Lennix, Steve Harris, Angela Bassett with John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson.
