MLK/FBI, directed by Sam Pollard, is now available to watch at home!

The highly acclaimed film was a hit at the Toronto International Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, New York Film Festival, and DOC NYC, where Pollard received DOC NYC’s Visionaries Tribute Lifetime Achievement Award

“Suspenseful, visually engrossing and intellectually bracing. An exemplary historical documentary — unafraid of moral judgment but also attentive to the fine grain of ambiguity that clings to the facts.”
– A.O. Scott,The New York Times

“Eye-opening and jaw-dropping. Could not have arrived at a more pertinent moment.” –Rolling Stone

MLK/FBI is the first film to uncover the extent of the FBI’s surveillance and harassment of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Based on newly discovered and declassified files, utilizing a trove of documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and unsealed by the National Archives, as well as revelatory restored footage, the documentary explores the government’s history of targeting Black activists, and the contested meaning behind some of our most cherished ideals. Featuring interviews with key cultural figures including former FBI Director James Comey and directed by Emmy® Award-winner and Oscar®-nominee Sam Pollard, MLK/FBI tells this astonishing and tragic story with searing relevance to our current moment.
