    Renowned filmmaker Spike Lee spoke to students and faculty during an invite-only master class on MU’s campus Wednesday afternoon.

    Stacey Woelfel, director of the Jonathon B. Murray Center for Documentary Journalism at MU, helped coordinate the event. He said discussions for Lee to teach a master class started during Lee’s previous visit to Columbia.

    Woelfel said Lee was invited to campus as part of an ongoing series where students hear from filmmakers first-hand on their work in the film industry.

    Spike Lee, he said, is the biggest name in the series so far.
