Ma 6-T va crack-er (Standard French: Ma cité va craquer, English translation: My Projects are Going to Crack, derived from craquer ("break down") and the drug crack cocaine) is a French movie directed by Jean-François Richet in 1997, caricaturing gang warfare.
The story is set in a cité (6-T in French slang), or housing project, in the Parisian suburb of Meaux. The residents are unhappy about their living conditions, and are rebelling against this. Some critics compare it to the film La Haine, directed by Mathieu Kassovitz and starring Vincent Cassel, as well as to Le Cercle de la haine.
