(ROBERT GUÉDIGUIAN, 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 market 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. The film will
be introduced with folk songs from Steve Byrne.
