Inspired by cinematic classics including Mean Streets, Do the Right Thing and The Battle of Algiers, Mathieu Kassovitz’s La Haine is arguably the most incendiary, provocative and prescient film to emerge from the 90’s. Starkly shot in black and white to show a Paris not on any tourist map, the film deals with France’s intolerance towards outsiders, following Vinz (Vincent Cassel, Irreversible, Oceans 12), Hubert (Hubert Koundé) and Saïd (Saïd Taghmaoui, Hideous Kinky, Three Kings), three young men trapped in the Parisian economic, ethnic and social underclass.
