Spike Lee has released a new short film. New York, New York is a three-and-a-half-minute clip that's available to stream on Instagram. Soundtracked by Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York," the short film travels around the city in the midst of lockdown, from a deserted Rockaway beach to an empty Yankee Stadium via Wall Street and Grand Central Station.
“My short film New York, New York is a love letter to its people. Plain and simple," Lee wrote on Instagram. The surprise short comes a day after Lee announced that his next film, Da 5 Bloods starring Chadwick Boseman, is set to be released via Netflix on June 12.
