KCRW Partner Screening: The Best of Enemies – Q&A with Taraji P. Henson


Film Independent Presents in partnership with KCRW bring you a special advance screening of THE BEST OF ENEMIES from STX Entertainment. This advance screening includes a special Q&A with Taraji P. Henson and writer-director-producer Robin Bissell. As a courtesy to our panelists, we ask that you stay for the conversation.

THE BEST OF ENEMIES is a timely drama starring Academy Award® nominee Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures) and Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri).

Based on a true story, THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.
