Watch the Official Trailer for Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman

Spike Lee‘s Jordan Peele collaboration BlacKkKlansman premiered at Cannes Film Festival over the weekend and its official trailer has finally reached those of us wishing we could have been there to see it. The film, which is said to have received a more-than-ten-minute standing ovation, stars John David Washington and is based on true events. It’s also Lee’s response to the Charlottesville events and the current president’s willful neglect and oppressive values. Watch the BlacKkKlansman trailer above and watch Spike Lee discuss the fervent activism behind the film in his Cannes press conference speech below.
