Judas and the Black Messiah (15)

Friday 2nd July 2021 - Thursday 8th July 2021

Dir. Shaka King, US, 2021, 125 mins. Cast. Lakeith Stanfield, Jesse Plemons, Daniel Kaluuya.
Language: English

Judas and the Black Messiah is a film about the betrayal of Fred Hampton, chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party in late-1960s Chicago, at the hands of William O'Neal, an FBI informant. A career thief, O'Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler, Special Agent Roy Mitchell. Hampton's political prowess grows just as he's falling in love with fellow revolutionary Deborah Johnson. Meanwhile, a battle wages for O'Neal's soul. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover commands? An electrifying dramatization of historical events, this is a forceful condemnation of racial injustice - and a major triumph for its director and stars.
