Our guest is Shaka King, the director, co-writer and producer of “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The film tells the story of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton and FBI informant William O’Neal, whose intel led to Hampton’s killing by law enforcement in 1969. King talks about why he felt a responsibility to make the movie, how one day of shooting felt like stepping into a time warp, and making the jump from indie filmmaking to big studio production.

'Judas And The Black Messiah' Dir. Shaka King

IndieWire's Filmmaker Toolkit

The only way Shaka King was going to get a film made about the Chicago leader of the Black Panthers, Chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya), was to mask it as ‘Donnie Brasco’ genre film, and on this podcast we break down the incredible structure and ingenuity of this remarkable script. Shaka also talks about collaborating with DP Sean Bobbitt (after Bradford Young had to step away form the project), how the 'Judas' team turned modern day Cleveland into the westside of Chicago of the late 60s, the music track the director played at every pitch meeting (much to Exec Prod Ryan Coogler's dismay), and actress Dominique Fishback's vital role in shaping the film's third act and the role of Deborah Johnson (now known as Akua Njeri). 'Judas and the Black Messiah' is streaming now on HBO Max. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Episode 50 - Mtume Gant and Shaka King

Zebras In America

50 episodes!!!!FIFTY SON!!!To celebrate, directors Mtume Gant (SPIT, WHITEFACE) and Shaka King (NEWLYWEEDS, MULIGNANS, LAZERCISM) came by to talk about movies. We did talk about movies, but we also talked a lot about rap music and the most recent episode of Atlanta, "Teddy Perkins". Atlanta is a popular award winning show airing on FX and created by Donald Glover. This episode was met with a lot of praise. Does the aforementioned Episode actively borrow from Gant's "Whiteface"? Is it collective unconscious? We had opinions. Like most episodes, we go a lot of places, and we want to thank our loyal listener for sticking with us on this journey. We hope for 100s more episodes. Suicide was talked about. If you are ever having thoughts or ideations, you are love.Never think twice to reach out in dm to our twitter @zebraspod for support.
