IFC Films Opening in theaters and on demand January 15 Director: Sam Pollard Starring: Martin Luther King Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered today as an American hero: a bridge-builder, a shrewd political tactician, and a moral leader. Yet throughout his history-altering political career, he was often treated by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies like an enemy of the state. In this virtuosic documentary, award-winning editor and director Sam Pollard (Editor, 4 LITTLE GIRLS, MO’ BETTER BLUES; Director/Producer, EYEZ ON THE PRIZE, SAMMY DAVIS, JR.: I’VE GOTTA BE ME) lays out a detailed account of the FBI surveillance that dogged King’s activism throughout the ’50s and ’60s, fueled by the racist and red-baiting paranoia of J. Edgar Hoover. In crafting a rich archival tapestry, featuring some revelatory restored footage of King, Pollard urges us to remember that true American progress is always hard-won. #MLKFBI#IFCFilms Subscribe to IFC Films: https://bit.ly/2K4KMZV Connect with IFC Online IFC Films Official Site: http://www.ifcfilms.com Follow IFC Films on Twitter: http://twitter.com/IFCFilms Find IFC Films on Facebook: http://facebook.com/IFCFilmsOfficial Follow IFC Films on Instagram : http://instagram.com/ifcfilms
