About BlacKkKlansman

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee, written for the screen by the Academy Award winning team of Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, Kevin Wilmott, and Spike Lee, from the book by Ron Stallworth comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) 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 Jewish colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), 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® winning Get Out. BlacKkklansman won the 2019 Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
