Judas and the Black Messiah


From director Shaka King comes JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH, an electrifying biographical drama about the betrayal of the chairman of the Black Panther Party, featuring an impressive cast including Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Lakeith Stanfield (Sorry To Bother You, Knives Out), Martin Sheen (The West Wing) and Jesse Plemons (Vice).

Petty crim turned FBI informant William O’Neal (Stanfield) is tasked with infiltrating the Illinois branch of the Black Panther Party, gathering intelligence on Chairman Fred Hampton (Kaluuya). Utterly gripping as a piece of history as well as a standalone film, King’s biopic of the events that took place in the late ‘60s is a powerful indictment of racial injustices of the time.
