Film und Medien Stiftung NRW"You Will Not Have My Hate"

The night of 13 November, 2015 changes everything for Antoine Leiris (Pierre Deladonchamps). He loses Hélène (Camélia Jordana), the love of his life and mother of his 17-month-old child, in an attack at the Bataclan club in Paris. Whilst still in total shock, he defies the terror and violence in a moving social media post with a hopeful appeal: "You Will Not Have My Hate!". His message goes around the world and appears on the front page of the daily newspaper Le Monde. Living in an exceptional situation located between media attention and endless grief, Antoine must now find his way in the new reality – and do this, above all, for the sake of his little son Melvil (Zoé Iorio). In "You Will Not Have My Hate",  director Kilian Riedhof ("Gladbeck" and "Der Fall Barschel") shows the personal fate of a man who gives a deeply human response to the horror of terror. The screenplay (Kilian Riedhof, Jan Braren and Marc Blöbaum) is based on the eponymous bestseller by the journalist and author Antoine Leiris. The film is a production of Komplizen Film in co-production with Haut et Court (FR), Frakas Productions (BEL), NDR, Tobis, MMC Movies Köln, Erfttal Film, RTBF (Télévision Belge, BEL), Proximus (BEL), Shelter Prod in cooperation with CINÉ+, ARTE, Wallimage (La Wallonie, BEL), Haut et Court Distribution (FR), Cofinova 17 (FR), Indéfilms 9 (FR). The Filmstiftung NRW backed the production with 750,000 Euros. Additional support came from the FFA, DFFF, BKM, Eurimages, MOIN Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein, Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée and & ING. The film will be released by Tobis Film in German cinemas on 10 November.
