About the Event
Les Miserables | France | 2019 | Dir. Ladj Lay | 15 | 104 min | IDMb 7.6 | Subtitled
Assigned to work alongside unethical police veterans Chris and Gwada in Paris' Anti-Crime Brigade, Brigadier Stéphane Ruiz - a recent transplant to the working-class suburb of Montfermeil, where Victor Hugo wrote his famous novel Les Misérables - struggles to establish a working relationship with influential community leaders while attempting to maintain some semblance of peace between his disreputable team and the citizens of the local housing projects. When what should be a simple arrest goes tragically awry, the three officers must individually reconcile with the aftermath of their actions while angling to keep the neighbourhood from retaliating with mob violence.
Beginning as a Cesar-winning short film, the film was inspired by the 2005 riots in Paris. It was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Jury Prize (in a tie with BACURAU) and was selected as France's entry for Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards.
