Directed by Spike Lee

Produced by Oscar-winning Get Out auteur Jordan Peele, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman tells the astonishing true story of one of the riskiest undercover investigations in American history – an improbable early ’70s case in which African-American police detective Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, Denzel’s son) applied for and was ultimately granted membership to the Ku Klux Klan. An unflinching examination of race relations in 1970s America that still feels bracingly relevant, the film reads as a stinging rebuke to the Trump administration. A return to form for Lee, the film was one of the major prize-winners at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
