Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), an African American police officer from Colorado Springs, CO, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan branch with the help of a Jewish surrogate (Adam Driver) who eventually becomes its leader. Based on actual events. Rotten Tomatoes (95%) says, “BlacKkKlansman uses history to offer bitingly trenchant commentary on current events -- and brings out some of Spike Lee's hardest-hitting work in decades along the way.”
Rated R, 135 minutes.
Attendance is limited to the first 60 people and not guaranteed. Doors will open 30 minutes before show time.
Co-presentation of Albany Library and Albany FilmFest.
