Event Description 

Malik, a 19-year-old French-Arab, enters prison as an uneducated naïf and is thrust into rigidly defined social system rife with corruption, cronyism, and racism. Director Audiard’s intricate study of the bloody rules and rituals behind bars never once glorifies the shocking violence that becomes a rite of passage for Malik. A Prophet instead offers a clear-eyed examination of the ambiguous figure Malik cuts in maneuvering the laws and loyalties of the violent prison world.

Free and open to the public.  All films subtitled in English.

Support for the Tournées Festival is provided by
