Chi-Raq is a modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek play Lysistrata by Aristophanes. After the murder of a child by a stray bullet, a group of women led by Lysistrata organize against the ongoing violence in Chicago’s Southside, creating a movement that challenges the nature of race, sex and violence in America and around the world.

Directed by critically-acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee and co-written by Lee and Kevin Willmott, Chi-Raq features an all star cast including Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson.
