Time & Tickets

Mathieu Kassovitz took the film world by storm with LA HAINE, a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at the racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieue districts on Paris’s outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz, Hubert, and Saïd – a Jew, an African, and an Arab – give human faces to France’s immigrant populations, their bristling resentment at their marginalization slowly simmering until it reaches a climactic boiling point. A work of tough beauty, LA HAINE is a landmark of contemporary French cinema and a gripping reflection of its country’s ongoing identity crisis.

Matthieu Kassovitz, France, 1995, 98 min. French spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Vincent Cassel, Hubert Koundé, Saïd Taghmaoui, Abdel Ahmed Ghili.
