BlacKkKlansman

2018 – 135 minutes.

Ground-breaking director Spike Lee based this provocative film on the life of Ron Stallworth, a policeman from Colorado Springs who was the first African American cop who managed to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.

Detective Stallworth (John David Washington) and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) managed to penetrate all the way up to the highest echelons of the KKK. The two men aimed to thwart the plans of this secretive, extremist organisation to take control of their city. In his distinctively direct yet humorous style, Spike Lee (Inside Man, Malcolm X, Do the Right Thing) tells an incredible tale that can’t be found in the pages of most history books. Produced by the team behind the Oscar-winning movie Get Out.
