Here's the new 4K re-release trailer for Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine, direct from BFI's YouTube:
Simmering hostility and prejudices boil over in Mathieu Kassovitz's provocative and compelling portrait of a Parisian housing project. Set in the aftermath of a riot, three friends – Vinz (Vincent Cassell), Hubert (Hubert Koundè) and Saïd (Saïd Taghmaoui) – trapped by their economic, ethnic, and thier community circumstances, navigate the escalating urban discontent. But, with tensions still high and the threat of violence ever-present, the trio drift towards an increasingly dangerous destiny. La Haine is both written and directed by French actor / filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz, it was his second feature that he directed at the time, following Café au lait before it. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1995, where it won Best Director. It later opened in the US in February of 1996. BFI will re-release the 4K restoration of Kassovitz's La Haine in UK cinemas starting September 11th this fall. For more info head to BFI's website.
