France is nominating for an Oscar-winning film in Cannes

Lesjérables (The Miserable), the first feature film by Ladj Ly to be named Best International Film by France for the Oscar, was announced by the French National Film Institute (CNC).

The work, which won the jury's award at the Cannes festival, has dealt with a case of police abuse in 2008 in Montfermeil, an eastern suburb of Paris, to hurt a black-skinned teenager. & Nbsp;

The film begins the day after last year's World Cup victory in France in a sultry and euphoric small town, and follows the first days of a policeman from a quieter country post. Pento circles with his two colleagues, white-skinned racist Chris and locally-born black-skinned Gwada, who is well-known, born and still living in the 39-year-old director of Mali.

Distribution rights have already been purchased by more than fifty countries, with Amazon showing the film in the United States. & Nbsp; The American Film Academy will release Oscar nominations on January 13, 2020. The 92nd Academy Awards will be held on February 9 in Los Angeles.
