Marcel Hanoun

In this rarely-screened and forgotten gem, Tunisian filmmaker Marcel Hanoun seeks to invent a new cinematographic writing to witness the historical reality of the 1968 youth-quake in Paris. Filmed in Summer 1968, the film carries within it the traces of May events, through the eyes of a young woman intellectual. She reflects on political events and tries to get over a break up with a young man. The film is a pure document of a particular and specific period when love and revolution collide amongst the young intellectuals in Paris. Experimental filmmaker Babette Mangolte is credited with additional photography.
