SPIKE LEE WINS COVETED AWARD AT CANNES
Director Spike Lee returned to the Cannes Film Festival for the first time since 1991 and was awarded the prestigious Grand Prix award for his film Black KkKlansman. Written by Oscar winning director of ‘Get Out’ Jordan Peele and starring Denzel Washington’s son John David Washington and Star Wars star Adam Driver, it’s the true story set in the early 1970s, as Ron Stallworth, played by Washington, is the first Black detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Stallworth really wants to make a name for himself so he bravely sets out to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan via a series of telephone calls. To help do this he recruits a more seasoned white colleague, Flip Zimmerman played by Driver, into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. See the trailer below:
