Synopsis

We're closing our Black History Month celebrations with the Cannes Jury Prize winning BlacKkKlansman, which will take part in Screen 2 and will be free for all Tower Hamlets residents*.


We are very excited to announce that this screening is co-presented with our new partners, Year Here, as part of the Social Action Cinema series, and will be preceded by a specialist panel discussion on the film. Questions and comments for the panel can be emailed to hello@yearhere.org in advance.


Films can motivate you, inspire you to live differently and even transform beliefs. Social Action Cinema is an inclusive cinematic experience, bringing neighbours together to share stories and ideas for social change in East London.


From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman, into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out.


BlacKkKlansman screens in conjunction with Tower Hamlets' Black History Month celebrations.


*Proof of Tower Hamlets address required to claim your free ticket. Please note that you can only book this at our Box Office.
