French Film Festival- Featuring "La Haine"

Home / Events / Event
La Haine

Join us on campus to explore French cinema in depth. 


This event will be focused on, “La Haine”- more than 25 years on, Kassovitz’ film retains much of its power as the breakthrough representation of France’s troubled suburbs. Not only as an inventive and artistic depiction of 24 hours in the lives of three young men between their outer-urban estate and Paris, but also because the problems of social exclusion, racism and police brutality have not gone away. 

Students will have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in French cinema and will enjoy a screening of the film.

There will then be the choice of 2 workshops: 

WORKSHOP 1- French Students- Join Dr Steve Cannon Senior Lecturer in Film Studies (Author of a number of studies of French cinema and popular music; co-editor of the book Popular Music in France from Chanson to Techno: Culture, Identity and Society). Dr Stephen Cannon will be delivering a talk in French “Jeunesse et identité dans ‘le cinéma de banlieue” 

WORKSHOP 2- Film Students- Join our Sunderland final year film students for a workshop on “Youth, Identity & Society in the ‘banlieue’ film”. 

To conclude the event, students can explore the new and upgraded facilities, including our 4K-UHD virtual studio, new studio lighting and our refreshed Spark Sunderland radio studio. There will also be academic staff available who can talk about our range of film and media courses.
