Clement Virgo on becoming Spike Lee

Subject

Description

When filmmaker Clement Virgo was 18 years old, he saw Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It. For the first time. “I was trying to figure out what to do with my life and didn’t really have a lot of role models,” says Virgo, who will be interviewing Lee this Tuesday evening in Toronto as part of TD Canada’s Black History Month celebrations. “After that, I must’ve gone back and watched the movie three or four more times and I was still amazed — I’d never seen anybody who looked like I did doing something that I want to do.”
