About the Film

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 turns into violence, with tragic consequences...

Mathieu Kassovitz’s bold and inventive film, beautifully shot by Pierre Aïm, may be 25 years old, but in terms of its themes of social and economic divide and urban discontent, it feels as fresh and relevant now.
