OPEN FILM Cinema // La Haine

OPEN FILM Cinema debuts in April with a special screening of Mathieu Kassovitz's controversial 1995 feature La Haine.

La Haine explores police brutality, depicting fatal riots, corrupt policemen and institutional racism and is a sobering reminder of the battles still not yet won.

La Haine held up a mirror to the social ills of modern France and arrived during a dark time in the country’s history. Twenty years on, with a sequel mooted and France again experiencing uncertain times, we reflect on the film’s lasting significance.
