La Haine

1h 38m Drama, Crime 1995

Mathieu Kassovitz’s truly iconic portrait of contemporary French life lit up Cannes in 1995, bringing home the Best Director prize and changing the cultural landscape of French cinema forever.

Shot in glorious black-and-white with dynamic camera work, Kassovitz defiantly captures the culture of the oft-ignored Parisien concrete banlieues as we see the world through the eyes of three friends, one Black, one Muslim, the other Jewish – a star-making role from Vincent Cassel.

Taking place over the 24 hours after a police shooting of a the boys’ friend, La Haine depicts the frustration of being marginalised by police, politicians and society – proving how hate only breeds more hate.
