BlacKkKlansman made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, where it received a six-minute standing ovation, on May 14. The film is set in 1970s, follows Ron Stallworth, the first African-American police officer in Colorado Springs, Colo., works under cover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in 1979. When his presence was required, the officers sent a white officer in who doubled him and became highly regarded within the organization.

The true story first captured the intention of "Get Out" director Peele, who told The Hollywood Reporter that when he learned about Stallworth's Klan-busting operation, "I was just blown away. As much as BlacKkKlansman plays with the mechanics of blaxploitation fantasy, it doesn't leave one with any question about what's real". 'BLACKkKLANSMAN', which pairs Lee with Jordan Peele, has been gaining attention for its interesting story plot.
