BATIMENT 5 | Official Trailer
Watch the trailer of Bâtiment 5, the new feature film of Ladj Ly.
When the existing mayor suddenly dies, family doctor Pierre (Alexis Manenti) finds himself chosen as interim mayor. But Pierre is woefully unfamiliar with the less affluent members of his constituency and soon realizes he’s in over his head. Haby (Diaw), meanwhile, is Pierre’s opposite: president of a public housing association, she herself lives in one of the city’s “10-storey favelas.” As Pierre’s administration unleashes an aggressive campaign targeting immigrants, Haby decides to put herself forward as a candidate in the forthcoming mayoral election. But can she and her team act fast enough to prevent their community from being evicted wholesale?
The film will be released in theatres in France on December 6 !
