Time & Tickets

It’s the early 1970s, a time of great social upheaval as the struggle for civil rights rages on. Ron Stallworth becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with scepticism and open hostility by the department’s rank and file. Undaunted, Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community. He bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

Posing on the phone as a racist extremist, Stallworth contacts the group and soon finds himself invited into its inner circle. He even cultivates a relationship with the Klan’s Grand Wizard, David Duke, who praises Ron’s commitment to the advancement of White America. With the undercover investigation growing ever more complex, Stallworth’s Jewish colleague, Flip Zimmerman, poses as Ron in face-to-face meetings with members of the hate group, gaining insider’s knowledge of a deadly plot.
Director Spike Lee and producer Jordan Peele turn actual events into a stylish and provocative movie that reminds us of a simple truth: history always repeats itself.

Spike Lee, USA, 2018, 135 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Adam Driver, John David Washington, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin, Laura Harrier.
