Join us for the screening of Mathieu Kassovitz’s classic film from the Parisian suburbs La Haine with introduction by artist Johannes Sivertsen.
This powerful drama from filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz takes an unblinking look at a racially diverse group of young people trapped in the Parisian economic and social underclass.
The film will be introduced by the French-Danish artist Johannes Sivertsenwho was invited by residents of the French suburb Clichy- sous-Bois, where he also grew up, to paint a more diverse and positive image of the life and landscape of their neighbourhood after the fierce media image in the wake of the local riots.
The film will be screened as a ‘living room set up’ inside the exhibition configuration of LACATON & VASSAL’s 1960s social housing block.
We have popcorn and the bar is open all night 🍿
