Watch: Go On Set and BTS with Spike Lee on His ‘BLACKkKLANSMAN’

Observe the direction of Brooklyn’s finest up close.

Spike Lee’s much anticipated narrative feature, BLACKkKLANSMAN, based on the real-life account of Officier Ron Stallworth’s 1970s infiltration into the KKK, is set to open in theaters this Friday. Out of the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, the film was hailed as one of Lee’s definitive best, and, debuting in 1,500 theaters, it may also prove to be one of his most successful at the box office.

With subject matter that feels all too relevant to today’s political climate (and with a theatrical release timed to the one year anniversary of the fatal Charlottesville, Virginia protests), the film is destined to become a topic of heavy conversation throughout the rest of 2018.

Starring John David Washington (Denzel’s son, who Lee directed numerous times, most notably in 1992’s Malcolm X), Adam Driver, and Topher Grace (as Klan leader David Duke), the film appears to be both wild and outrageous, a comedy with deadly, all-too-real implications.
