The award-winning Judas and the Black Messiah follows the story of Fred Hampton, the gifted civil rights leader who rose through the Black Panther party to become chairman of the Chicago chapter, is often missing from history. And even lesser known is the role that petty criminal and FBI informant William O’Neal played in his downfall.
Director Shaka King tells both their stories with complexity and careful precision, in this fast-paced and hard-hitting drama, fused together with gripping editing and stunning cinematography. At the centre of it all, pulsing through the film is a trilogy of exceptional and electrifying performances from Daniel Kaluuya as Fred Hampton, LaKeith Stanfield as William O’Neal and Dominique Fishback in a heart-breaking turn as Hampton’s partner Deborah Johnson.
