In the fall of 1994, Gilles Favier took free electron photography around the filming of La Haine. Requested a few weeks before by Mathieu Kassovitz, he had come to document the setting of the film. The script, the context, the inhabitants of the city recruited as extras, are all signs that make him sense that something important is about to happen. He obtains the production’s agreement to come and document every day of the eight weeks of shooting and its reception in the city. In May 1995, the film was released and went to the top of the box office, selling more than 2 million tickets and becoming a myth for a generation and the next.
Twenty-five years later, at the request of Mathieu Kassovitz, Gilles Favier exhumed his 220 rolls of photographic film. Vincent Perrottet seized the opportunity to compose the anniversary book of a film that is not the ¼ of a century and resonates every day with current events.
