Series on Immigration Movies - "LA PROMESSE (The Promise)"

From Wednesday, 14th June, 2017 at 6.00 PM


Bangalore International Centre had arranged the screening of a feature film under Immigration Series - “La Promesse (The Promise)” on Wednesday, 14th June, 2017 at 6.00 PM at its auditorium.

La promesse is the breakthrough feature from Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, who would go on to become a force in world filmmaking. The brothers brought the unerring eye for detail and the compassion for those on society’s lowest rungs developed in their earlier documentary work to this absorbing drama about a teenager (Jérémie Renier) gradually coming to understand the implications of his father’s making a living through the exploitation of undocumented workers. Filmed in the Dardennes’ industrial hometown of Seraing, Belgium, La promesse is a brilliantly economical and observant tale of a boy’s troubled moral awakening.
