Short Films

Spike Lee and Uber are working on a joint venture to “fight the power.”  A series of short films will be shown focusing on the people behind the scenes in Lee’s favorite borough of New York – Brooklyn.  Entitled ‘Uber Presents Da Republic of Brooklyn,’ any Uber drivers choosing to take part in the movies are being compensated for their time and project participation.

Lee said:

“I was attracted to this project because I know a lot of people who drive on the Uber platform and it gives them the flexibility they need to pursue their dreams. That’s how we do it in Brooklyn – that’s the Brooklyn hustle.”

The series features   “Malka,” “Sunny,” “Domingo,” “Keith,” and “Rodney” and can be viewed on Uber Presents.
