CHI-RAQ Trailer [Video]

Spikes uses this film like he has done with previous films to explore current issues inside our communities. Placed in Chicago, this movie takes a look at the gang violence in this city that has caused it to make headlines across the country. He loosely used the plot from the ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata  in which women tried to end the Peloponnesian War by withholding sex from their husbands until they signed a peace treaty. In Chiraq, the women of Chicago exercise  similar strategies to try and convince their men to put down their guns and end the killings. 

Spike Lee has released the official trailer for the movie which hits theaters this December 4th.
