Asian Dub Foundation to score La Haine screenings

Asian Dub Foundation will soundtrack London and Paris-based screenings of Mathieu Kassovitz’s cult 1995 film, ‘La Haine’, as a pertinent means of marking the two capitals’ respective forthcoming mayoral and presidential elections. In fact, the movie will play on the very eve of said votes.

In London, one aim of the venture is to engage the community at the heart of the ‘La Haine’-esque urban violence that broke out during last summer’s riots, and as such the chosen site for a free locals-only screening on 2 May is the Broadwater Farm Centre in Tottenham.

Londoners at large will have a second viewing opportunity after the mayoral vote at The Troxy in Limehouse on 4 May, while residents of the film’s on-screen setting will have their chance at the live-scored version’s Parisian premiere on 5 May.
