Film show: French comedy thumbs its nose at political correctness and tackles racism


With anti-racist protests erupting in Europe and the United States, Jean-Pascal Zadi and John Wax's film on the particularities of French racism is a timely release. "Tout Simplement Noir" brings together a star-studded cast who manage to find the humour in some serious social questions. We also check out the film festival billing itself as the first post-Covid-19 live event, as Marseille's FID showcases the best in international documentary features.


Plus, landmark French social drama "La Haine" is remastered a quarter of a century after its original release and China's cinemas finally open their doors after six months of lockdown.
