40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks in partnership with Variance Films will release the critically-acclaimed film RED HOOK SUMMER ( in six major markets on August 24: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Washington, DC.

"There is a starving audience for American independent films like RED HOOK SUMMER," says writer/director Spike Lee. "That's why I'm asking my fellow Morehouse brothers, friends, family, colleagues and cinema-lovers to help get the word out about this film and flood the theaters on August 24."

Lee will be making theater appearances in Atlanta (AMC Phipps) at the 7:15pm and 10:15pm shows on August 24 as well as in Los Angeles (Arclight Hollywood) at the 7:45pm and 10:40pm shows on August 25.

The latest in Spike Lee's Chronicles of Brooklyn (which also include SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT, DO THE RIGHT THING, CROOKLYN, CLOCKERS, and HE GOT GAME), RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster--until he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he'd ever imagined.
