Behind the Scenes Look at La Haine (Hate)
Not unlike most of the films featured on IMDb's Top 250 Movies of All Time list, La Haine (Hate) has made a lasting impression and still twenty years later is more relevant than ever.
Starring Hubert Koundé, Saïd Taghmaoui and Vincent Cassel the film covers a day in the lives of three young adults living in the impoverished, multi-ethnic French projects. Far from what we normally see on the big screen, this film captures the urban realism of its setting through stark black-and-white cinematography, following these young men as they hustle to survive and support their families amongst mounting racial and social tension from the police and French purists.*
