LES MISERABLES

Status: Completed

Director(s): Ladj Ly

Long synopsis : Stéphane has recently joined the Anti-Crime Brigade in Montfermeil, in the Paris suburbs. Alongside his new colleagues Chris and Gwada “ both experienced members of the team “ he quickly discovers tensions running high between neighbourhood gangs. When they find themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures their every movement, their every action¦ Inspired by the riots of 2005, César nominee and Kourtrajmé* collective member Ladj Ly explores contemporary Montfermeil, the same place where Victor Hugo chose to set “Les Misérables”in 1862. More than 150 years later, the similarities between today™s angry, hoodie-wearing youth and Gavroche are only too clear. *Kourtrajme is a collective of artists created by Kim Chapiron, Ladj Ly and Romain Gavras and supported by Vincent Cassel and Mathieu Kassovitz.
