La Haine (1995) is set in the 24 hours following a suburban riot. Three friends are wandering the city encountering skinheads and casual police violence. Vincent Cassell leads Mathieu Krassovitz’ angry film about racism and social exclusion in modern Paris to both controversy and acclaim. This film is among the most incendiary European films of its decade – and its themes may have become even more relevant and urgent in European societies today.
