The programme for September will resonate with the now, drawing on the themes that have dominated our lives during lockdown. These include Redefining Rebellion, a season programmed by film journalist and critic Kaleem Aftab, which draws its inspiration from Mathieu Kassovitz’s trailblazing ‘La Haine’. Re-released in a 4K restoration in selected cinemas by the BFI on 11 September, ‘La Haine’ maybe 25 years old, but its themes of social and economic divide and discontent, make it just as distinctive now as it was then.
