In the early 1970s, with the struggle for civil rights raging on, Ron Stallworth becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with scepticism and open hostility.
Undaunted, Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and bravely sets out on a dangerous mission to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Posing as a racist extremist, Stallworth contacts the group and soon finds himself invited into its inner circle. As the undercover investigation grows more complex, Stallworth teams up with colleague Flip Zimmerman to take down the organisation whose real aim is to sanitise its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
Produced by the team behind the Academy Award-winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman offers an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as bracingly relevant in today's tumultuous world.
