Using the memoir by Ron Stallworth as a jumping off point, this Spike Lee joint follows the young African American police officer as he attempts to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in 1970s, Colorado. Nominated for a wealth of awards – and winner of the Cannes Jury Grand Prix – this biting comedy-drama is a provocative satire and a major comeback for the visionary director.
