BlacKkKlansman

USA 2018 | 128 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

In the early 1970s, the (very white) Colorado police recruits a young Afro-American. He is assigned office duty but dreams of working in the field. When he comes across a newspaper ad for the Ku Klux Klan, he contacts the advertisers, if only to prove that he can intuitively talk to a white man. But what starts out as a joke, becomes an operation that enables police to infiltrate the racist organization. Esteemed director, Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) adapts a true story into a sweeping action comedy that won the Grand Jury Award at Cannes. Although taking place nearly fifty years ago, Lee traces a straight line between organized racism of the past, Charlottesville, and more recent disturbing events.
