As Spike Lee preps for the release of his forthcoming film BlacKkKlansman, the acclaimed film director recently spoke with TIME magazine about the movie, America's current political climate, and why he ended up using numerous videos from the Charlottesville rally a year ago as the ending to BlacKkKlansman.

Lee is releasing his latest film, "BlacKkKlansman", this weekend, a year after the violent clashes in Charlottesville in which anti-racism activist Heather Heyer was run over and killed.

"BlacKkKlansman", based on the true story of an African-American police detective in the 1970s who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan, arrives in movie theaters on Friday.

"I want the guy in the White House to see it too".

"When I saw the horrific act of domestic, American homegrown terrorism, I knew right away I wanted to do this", Lee said of the events in Charlottesville.

"No, I don't use his name either- agent orange", Lee said. "They're narcissists", said Stallworth, who is portrayed by John David Washington in the movie.

The New York Times called it "a furious, funny, blunt and brilliant confrontation with the truth".
