Ghett'Up: Bringing the US to the French suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis


FRANCE 24's new show Banlieue Project is a platform for residents of France’s disadvantaged suburbs to tell their own stories. We provide the camera and they film their experiences to break down clichés about the French "banlieues". In this first episode, we meet Inès. Originally from the Paris suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis, she studied in the United States during her business school degree and was inspired by the people she met there. When she came back to France, she set up Skype workshops which allow youngsters in Seine-Saint-Denis to exchange with Americans. Inès tells us more.

French intelligence had received a tip-off that the suspected ringleader of the attacks was hiding in a residential building and police stormed the block of flats. Many residents were evacuated from their homes. More than a year on from that traumatising night, some say the state has still not helped them to find a new home. Our reporters went to meet them.
