BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee and the producing team behind GET OUT comes another provocative exploration of American race relations – and an incredible, true story of an American hero. Set in the midst of the 1970s civil rights movement, the film follows Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), determined to make a name for himself as the first black detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department. He sets out to prove his worth by infiltrating the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, and convinces his more seasoned, Jewish colleague (Adam Driver) to go undercover in the brave and dangerous investigation of a lifetime – as a white supremacist. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. With Laura Harrier, Alec Baldwin, Topher Grace.

BLACKkKLANSMAN is currently nominated for a stunning six Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director (Spike Lee), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor (Adam Driver).

“There are few filmmakers as consistently, burningly passionate as Spike Lee. This is vital and timely work that’s up there with his best, with a gut-wrenching sting in the tail.” (Empire Magazine)

BLACKKKLANSMAN is a well-crafted dramatization of real events and one of Spike Lee’s more effective cinematic sermons on racism in recent memory.” (ScreenRant)

“For all its revelations of racist rot at the core of American society, Lee also offers a clear, specific, and wondrous, if wary, view of change that’s possible because, at one time and to some extent, it actually happened.” (New Yorker)
