Shaka King’s magnetic film carries themes that continue to resonate today and serves as a reminder of the potent power of the people.

Based on true events, charismatic, young Illinois Black Panther party chairman, Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out), vows to create a “rainbow coalition” uniting all races and fighting to end systemic racial oppression. As his political prowess grows, Hampton demands all power to the people and inspires a growing movement of solidarity, prompting the FBI to consider him a threat and to plant informant William O’Neal (LaKeith Stanfield, Sorry to Bother You), to infiltrate the party.

These two incredible actors are at the top of their game, Kaluuya channelling Hampton’s ability to energize and unite communities, with electrifying results, while Stanfield keenly taps into the bitter anguish of a man with conflicting allegiances.

"Led by sensational performances this is a scalding account of oppression and revolution, coercion and betrayal, rendered more shocking by the undiminished currency of its themes." – The Hollywood Reporter
