Director's Biography

Born in 1980, Ladj Ly was quickly attracted to cinema. In the mid-1990s, he joined the Kourtrajmé collective, where he made a number of music videos and making-of films, as well as his first short films, Montfermeil les Bosquets (1997) and Go Fast Connection (2008). After the riots that took place in Paris suburbs in 2005, Ly decided to film his neighbourhood for a year, which resulted in the documentary 365 jours à Clichy-Montfermeil (2007). His first feature-length film, Les Misérables (2019), was selected for the Festival de Cannes, where it won the Jury Prize.

In the presence of the film crew

Haby, a young woman deeply involved in the life of her community, discovers the redevelopment plan for her neighbourhood. Led behind closed doors by Pierre Forges, a young doctor thrust into the role of mayor, the plan calls for the demolition of the block where Haby grew up. Together with the inhabitants of the building, she embarks on a fierce battle to prevent the destruction of Block 5.
