Spike Lee has launched another perfectly timed counteroffensive: a calmly wrenching mix of oral history and period newsreels.

It's presented with Lee's usual intelligence and clarity as he skilfully mixes politics with moving reminders of the lives it affects.

Time and tragedy may have flattened the four girls into remote paragons of youthful virtue, but the viciousness of anti-integrationist rhetoric is palpable and should never be forgotten.

Spike Lee's Oscar-nominated documentary, about one of the defining moments of the civil rights movement, balances personal and painful memories of many witnesses with a poignantly political expose of the event, the murder of four innocent girls.

The big part of Lee's film commemorates the lives of the '4 little girls' who died, through the memories of parents, siblings and friends.

Some of the credit for the two convictions may well be due to Spike Lee's memorable 1997 documentary...which brought new attention to the case.
