Britain Movies Against Riots

  This Wednesday, May 2, 2012 a bmx rider performs before a free screening of "La Haine" ("Hate"), a powerful 1995 film about alienated youth on the impoverished high-rise fringes of Paris at Broadwater Farm Community Center in north London. Isaac Densu lives in Broadwater Farm, a large, concrete public housing estate in Tottenham, the gritty and deprived district where last year's riots began. Unemployment is high, and young people face many temptations to get into trouble. Densu thinks he knows what might help: a good movie. The film-loving 26-year-old thinks watching movies can help his neighbors expand their horizons and embrace creativity, rather than violence. (AP Photo/Sang Tan)
