Spike Lee commemorates Michael Jackson's birthday with ‘They Don't Care About Us' (2020)

MUMBAI: Director Spike Lee yesterday revealed a new version of Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us” short film during his annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson block party celebrating the King of Pop’s birthday, which this year took place virtually.

Watch here:

“Great protest songs can’t get old, stale or non-relevant because the struggle still continues,” he said. “That’s why they don’t really care about us” is the anthem during this chaotic, pandemic world we are living in.”

“They Don’t Care About Us (2020)” incorporates scenes from the original two short films for the “HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I” single (one filmed in Brazil and one set in prison examining police brutality) with footage from protests which took place all over the world including cities such as Osaka, Helsinki, Paris, Madrid, Atlanta, NYC, Tel Aviv, Rafah, Brooklyn, Tunis, London, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, Toronto, Kenosha, Melbourne, Chicago and many more.
