The trailer for Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus hints at some common themes in Lee’s work, including race relations in America, sex, and religion. It should be interesting to say the least.
Spike Lee’s Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus is the first Kickstarter-funded film by a major studio director. As the trailer states, it will be released in theaters and iTunes on February 13.
“Spike Lee’s new stylized thriller DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS is a new kind of love story. Dr. Hess Green (Stephen Tyrone Williams) becomes cursed by a mysterious ancient Afrian artifact and is overwhelmed with a newfound thirst for blood. He however is not a vampire. Soon after his transformation he enters into a dangerous romance with Ganja Hightower (Zaraah Abrahams) that questions the very nature of love, addiction, sex, and status in our seemingly sophisticated society.”
