PODCAST: BLACKKKLANSMAN | feat. Spike Lee
In this episode of the Curzon Film Podcast we’re extremely excited to welcome a true legend of cinema, Spike Lee, on to the show to talk through his latest joint BlacKkKlansman.
In the studio, to discuss the film, we’re also thrilled to be joined Kaleem Aftab, author of ‘Spike Lee: That’s My Story and I’m Sticking to It’ as well as Little White Lies’ social producer Hannah Woodhead and regular contributors Kambole Campbell and Steven Ryder.
Spike Lee’s hugely enjoyable and politically timely film uses this unbelievable case to lift a lid on racism in America, both past and present. It’s frequently hilarious, particularly in highlighting the idiocy of the Klan, but never misses a moment to comment on racial inequality.
Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) was a black Colorado police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan by going undercover, with the help of a white colleague (Adam Driver), to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.
