For our 3rd virtual screening, we are welcoming a very special guest – Academy Award winner Payman Maadi! Starring Omar Sy (Intouchables), “Police” focuses on three Parisian police officers charged with driving a stranger back to the border. According to the statistics, this is something that happens all too frequently in France, where nearly 24,000 people were deported last year alone. Set over the course of 24 hours, the film explores the perspective of each character and sheds light on their personal lives through flashbacks, explaining how differently they are handling the moral dilemma.
Virginie, Erik and Aristide are police officers. All three try to keep their personal and emotional lives together while dealing with daily incidents of violence in homes and on the streets. One night, they are assigned an unusual mission: to drive a migrant to the airport for unspecified reasons. On the way there, Virginie discovers that the man will be sentenced to death if he goes back to his country. Faced with an unbearable dilemma, she starts to question their mission. The trio has one night to decide a man’s fate. – Synopsis
Night Shift has an existential, metaphysical dimension. It tells the story of characters who must decide whether to obey the rules or transgress them, and find themselves on a human journey. – Variety

As this is a local e-cinema platform and not a streaming platform, you will be asked to geolocate yourself, in order to respect the platform’s charter which limits the radius to France only. Once you have purchased your e-ticket, you will receive a connection link by email and all you will have to do is connect on the day of the screening, a few minutes before the start of the film.
Don’t miss « Police », probably one of the rare « policiers » in which a single gunshot isn’t fired… and our exclusive Q&A with actor Payman Maadi!
