“Brash, narratively risky, full of life and sneaky wit and brimming with terrific actors.”~Chicago Tribune

Aroview: Incendiary biopic set in late-60's Chicago, following the infiltration of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party by FBI informant William O'Neal (Lakeith Stanfield, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU), which culminated in the betrayal of chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). Full of powerhouse acting performances and timely themes of racial injustice, this is a major triumph for writer-director Shaka King.
