One of the most rebellious directors of contemporary American cinema returns, now based on the book Black Klansman, the memoirs of Ron Stallworth, who was the first African-American detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department. This genuine “Spike Lee joint” follows Stallworth as he infiltrates the insides of the Ku Klux Klan during the late seventies, a very turbulent time. Marked by a fierce cinephilia, with quotes that challenge cinematic totems, Lee achieves a police comedy in which ideology prevails. With racial tension as he order of the day, this kaleidoscopic study of cultural and institutional racism is yet another call of attention by a filmmaker who understands cinema as one of the best means to spread ideas. Or, to use only a few words, the “Please wake up” from School Daze becomes here more powerful and resonant.
