La Haine

Director: Mathieu Kassovitz

Released: France 1995  

Length: (98 mins)

Based on real events La Haine focuses on three friends over the course of one day in the housing projects of suburban Paris in the aftermath of a riot. With tension in the air and the police on constant surveillance it’s not long before prejudice and hostility turn into violence with tragic consequences. This 1995 film’s themes of social and economic divide and urban discontent still feel as fresh and relevant now.
