Delroy Lindo

Spotlight & MVFF Award


Delroy Lindo in conversation with Clarke Peters, with special guest Spike Lee


In Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods, Delroy Lindo is a Vietnam vet who returns to the country on a treasure hunt for gold. But the film's real treasure is its cast, particularly Lindo, haunting in his portrayal of a war-damaged soul. It is only the latest triumph for the Oakland actor whose roles resonate with his wide emotional palette and attention to the smallest character detail. The American Conservatory Theatre-trained Lindo was already a 1988 Tony nominee for August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone when he began his long association with Lee and rose to screen stardom as numbers kingpin Indian Archie in Lee’s Malcolm X. Parts in Clockers, Get Shorty, The Cider House Rules, Heist, TV’s The Good Fight, and more continue to reveal Lindo as one of our most gifted actors. Join us as we celebrate this Bay Area icon with a spotlight that includes Lindo in conversation on Da 5 Bloods and his esteemed body of work.
