Film show: ‘BlacKkKlansman’, ‘The Last of Us’ and Vilmos Zsigmon retrospective
Director Spike Lee drew inspiration from the dark history of white supremacy for his latest film, a 1970s cop comedy; the result, “BlacKkKlansman”, won him the Grand Prix at the Cannes film festival this year. Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us more about the true story behind this successful send-up of the men in the white robes.
We check out “The Last of Us” which charts one man’s migration to Europe and Vilmos Zsigmon is celebrated at a Paris cinema, as the Academy Award-winning cinematographer’s work is screened all month.
