Postponed - Film: La HaineFilm, Young People Sun 26 Apr – Fri 30 Nov, 3pm–6pm
Open to all 15-25 year olds
Join us for a free screening of Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine, followed by a youth panel lead discussion.
This classic, French, socio-political film follows a day in the life of three young men of immigrant families. The film follows the aftermath of a riot that begins after the attack of Abdel, a young Arab man. During the riot, a police officer looses their gun. With a missing weapon and a young man fighting for life, tensions are rising.
La Haine comes up time and time again in social discourse. The highlighted feelings of helplessness, isolation and the eruption of meaningless violence that occurs under misused police power, and the systemic brutality towards marginalised people such abuses birth, is no less significant in 2020 than it was in 1995.
