#14 BlacKkKlansman

December 4th, 2020

Spike Lee’s powerful piece is the subject of discussion in this episode of The Glacé Film Club. The 2018 release based on the memoirs of retired American police officer Ron Stallworth takes a deep dive into the fracturous issues of race that divides America.

Set in the 1970s, BlacKkKlansman depicts black police officer Ron Stallworth’s infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan and the events that follow. The true to life telling combines strong contemporary messages from Spike Lee to create a film that has an engrossing storyline as well as embodying an important ethical philosophy at its core.

As usual, Callum and Marcus will be giving their thoughts and exploring the wider themes surrounding the film.
