SGS Summer Film Festival: La Haine

This is an Archive of a Past Event

When a young Arab man is arrested and beaten unconscious by police, a riot erupts in the violent suburbs of Paris. La Haine depicts 24 hours in the lives of three of the victim's friends the day after the riot. As they wander aimlessly about their home turf in the aftermath of the violence, they try to come to grips with their outrage over the brutal beating. Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, France (1995).

Q&A to follow with Marie-Pierre Ulloa, Lecturer in French and Francophone Studies in the French and Italian Department at Stanford.
