Robert Guediguian | France | 2000 | 18
A powerful, timely exploration of immigration and the rise of European right, ‘La Ville Est Tranquille’ masterfully weaves a narrative tapestry from the lives of a diverse group of Marseilles individuals. Set within the working class neighbourhood of L’Estaque, the paths of Michelle (a fish marke
t worker), Paul (a dockworker turned cabdriver) and Abderamane (a young North African man just out of prison) converge on a journey through the lives and daily struggles of an entire city.
This screening was introduced with folk songs from Steve Byrne.
