Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan with the help of a white surrogate, who eventually becomes head of the local branch.
From visionary filmmaker, Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman, into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. 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. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award (R) winning GET OUT.
Starring John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Laura Harrier
Awards and Reviews
Winner – Grand Jury Prize, Nominee – Palme d’Or, Cannes Film Festival
Winner – Audience Award, Nominee – Variety Piazza Grande Award Locarno Film Festival
“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.” – Helen O’Hara, Empire
“BLACKKKLANSMAN slips seamlessly from borderline-absurdist humour to all-too-real horror, conjuring an urgent blend of sociopolitical period satire and contemporary wake-up call. It’s great to see this admirably unruly film-maker back at the height of his provocative powers” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
BLACKKKLANSMAN is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
