FRA | 2019 | dir. Ladj Ly, with Damien Bonnard, Alexis Manenti, Djebril Zonga

Inspired by the 2005 Paris riots, director Ladj Ly’s Oscar-nominated Les misérables is a hugely topical provocative insight into the tensions between neighbourhood residents and police.

Stéphane (Damien Bonnard) has recently joined the Anti-Crime Squad in Montfermeil, in the suburbs of Paris, France, where Victor Hugo set his famed novel Les Misérables. Alongside his new colleagues Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga) – both experienced members of the team – he quickly discovers tensions running high between local gangs. When the trio finds themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures the encounter, threatening to expose the reality of everyday life.
