The Summer Film Series returns, this year showcasing the power of black and white. Discover how directors have used this monochromatic style – by choice or by necessityto achieve a variety of effects, and explore each film alongside local film historian Jacob Greenberg. A black-and-white short film will precede each screening.

La Haine (Hate) tells the story of one summer day in the lives of three friends in a Parisian low-income housing project.After an incident of police brutality against their friend and an ensuing riot, the three friends – Vinz, a Jew; Saïd, an Arab; and Hubert, an Afro-Frenchman –distract themselves and avoid the police. When one friend reveals he has found a police revolver,and fears of another riot become imminent, the young men struggle to keep their heads and stay alive. Filmed in stark black and white with raw and brilliant performances, La Haine is a compelling human narrative.
