October 1st – NEON Theatre at Los Feliz 3
La Haine de Mathieu Kassovitz

The kids from the “Bluebell” projects have spent all night warring with the police. Why? Because a 16-year-old boy, Abdel Ichaha, is at near death after being beaten up under questioning by a police officer. Among these kids blinded by hate are three homeboys – Hubert, Saïd and Vinz. Together they’re about to live the most important day of their lives. Because today there’s the fourth hero of our story: the gleaming, chromeplated 9mm Beretta automatic which a plainclothes policeman is reported to have lost during the rioting.
