) and Alexis Manenti, the story revolves around Stéphane, who has just arrived from Cherbourg and joins the Montfermeil Anti-crime Squad in the Seine-Saint-Denis department, an inner suburb of Paris. On the same team as Chris and Gwada, two men with occasionally “peculiar” methods, he soon discovers the tensions among the different neighbourhood gangs. As they find themselves overwhelmed during an interrogation, a drone films every one of their movements…

Produced by Toufik Ayadi and Christophe Barral for SRAB FilmsLes Misérables is being co-produced by Rectangle Productions and Lyly Films. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature has also secured backing from the Ile-de-France region, the Cineventure Sofica and Cinefeel Prod. The 30-day shoot took place from 20 August-28 September in Clichy-sous-Bois and Montfermeil. The French distribution will be handled by Le Pacte and international sales by Wild Bunch.

A member of the Kourtrajmé collective (started up by Romain Gavras and Kim Chapiron) since 1996, Ladj Ly has a thorough knowledge of the environment where he has set his storyline and which he previously tackled in his documentary 365 jours à Clichy-Montfermeil (2005), about the urban riots, and the docu-fiction Go Fast Connection (2008), which took issue with how the media portrayed the suburb.
