SYNOPSIS

'Made [more than] 27 years ago, a quarter of a century after the sensational murders of three civil rights workers in a small deep south township by Ku Klux Klan members that it recreates, Mississippi Burning is wearing well. Arguably the finest of Alan Parker's 17 feature films, it's a vivid, passionate political thriller combining melodrama and semi-documentary realism to powerful effect. Mississippi Burning is a visceral experience, immersing the audience in the vicious anger of the local racists and the heat from the flaming crosses of the Ku Klux Klan.' The Guardian
