SYNOPSIS

Stéphane has joined the Anti-Crime Squad in the Montfermeil district in Paris, which is overrun by lawlessness and simmering aggravation between rival gangs. When the police cross paths with local youths who are driven to violence after being overawed during an arrest, a drone captures the incident and ignites the community into mass revolt. As tensions mount towards a final reckoning, Stéphane must adapt – at any cost.

Nominated by France as its submission for the Oscars, Ladj Ly has masterfully woven contemporary politics into Victor Hugo’s 19th century masterpiece of the same name with such raw and visceral energy that the film reverberates with an urgency for change against a broken system.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Born in Mali, Ladj Ly grew up in Montfermeil, Paris. Best known for his arresting socio-political documentaries, his first short film Les Misérables received the Prix Canal+ award at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. That inspired his debut feature film of the same name, which received the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
