Born On This Day — March 20, 1957

“Tell the story. That’s always the goal with the films I do. That’s what I tell my students at NYU… Tell the story you’re trying to tell, and try to tell interesting stories in interesting new ways. If you want to be a great director, you have to be a great storyteller. It’s not just about angles and stuff. You need both… it’s a delicate balance.” —Spike Lee
