La Haine - School Screening


Simmering hostility and prejudices boil over in Mathieu Kassovitz’s provocative and compelling portrait of a Parisian housing project.

Set in the aftermath of a riot, three friends – Vinz (Vincent Cassell), Hubert (Hubert Koundè) and Saïd (Saïd Taghmaoui) – trapped by their economic, ethnic and community circumstances, navigate the escalating urban discontent. But, with tensions still high and the threat of violence ever-present, the trio drift towards an increasingly dangerous destiny.

Kassovitz won the directing prize at Cannes (1995) with La Haine, becoming one of the most celebrated filmmakers of recent years. The film is a brutal indictment of urban strife and police brutality seen through the eyes of a band of violent teens. La Haine was a daring, bold and impassioned work over 25 years ago that still seems fresh and vital today.
