On Saturday January 12th at 2:15 PM PST, filmmakers Spike Lee and Jason Blum and cast members John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Laura Harrier, Corey Hawkins sat down for a live Q & A and discussed the backstory and the genesis of their film BLACKkKLANSMAN. This is a video of that 40 Minute Live Q & A, courtesy of Focus Features, and is moderated by Rotten Tomatoes editor Jacqueline Coley.

Synopsis of BLACKkKLANSMAN
From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) 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 (Adam Driver), 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.
