Overal ter wereld vragen jongeren aandacht voor schijnbaar uiteenlopende problemen: klimaatontwrichting, inperking van de persvrijheid, sociale onrechtvaardigheid, voedselonzekerheid, mensenrechtenschendingen of een gebrek aan toegang tot onderwijs. Allemaal geloven ze dat het anders kan en moet, en dat zij het verschil kunnen maken. Zoals Melati, die er als kind met haar zusje voor zorgde dat de verkoop van plastic zakjes en wegwerpverpakkingen op Bali werd verboden.

In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays Jef Costello, a contract killer with samurai instincts.

An elegantly stylized masterpiece of cool by maverick director Jean‑Pierre Melville, Le Samouraï is a razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture—with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology.
