POP-Corn presents: CHI-RAQ

Fri 19 Oct 18

For our Black History Month season, POP-Corn presents Spike Lee’s 2015 CHI-RAQ.

A modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play Lysistrata by Aristophanes, set against the backdrop of gang violence in Chicago, CHI-RAQ sees the girlfriend (Teyonah Parris) of a Chicago gang leader (Nick Cannon) persuade other frustrated women to abstain from sex until their men agree to end the senseless cycle of violence.
