Nicolas Boone|France|2014|DCP|33 min|CI: 14 anos
Nicolas Boone dissects the violent neighborhood of Hillbrow, in Johannesburg, through a series of episodes drawn from real life stories. A man stands in the ledge of a high building, looking down. Another man gets attacked on the streets. Violence is seen as a force of rupture on this urban panorama.
