Details

Winner of the Prix du Jury at 2019’s Cannes Film Festival and Oscar-nominated for this year’s Best International Feature Film, Ladj Ly’s powerful debut is a pulse-racing tale of social injustice within Montfermeil. Three plainclothes policemen work the beat through the Paris suburbs, but their unorthodox tactics threaten to inflame tensions with a variety of local youth gangs. Racial and ethnic tensions reach boiling point in this searing drama, inspired by the French riots that ripped through the country in 2005. 

A tour-de-force that will stand alongside La Haine as a classic of contemporary French Cinema.

In modern-day Montfermeil, the setting of Victor Hugo’s novel, the filmmaker Ladj Ly stages his own impassioned cry against oppression.
