Celebrating the art of film in Charlottesville and presented by the University of Virginia!

Director Sam Pollard’s resonant documentary utilizes newly declassified files to examine the relentless campaign of surveillance and harassment against Martin Luther King, Jr.. Despite current public opinion perceiving King as an American hero, MLK/FBI offers a harrowing confrontation of the years in which the United States government viewed him as a villainous threat. Using a stunning collection of archival footage from the 1950s and 1960s overlaid with contemporary audio interviews from various perspectives, this deeply impactful film offers a crucial way to connect the past to the present, reminding viewers that true American progress is always hard-won.
