Film Series : Revolution in the Air

Something in the Air by Olivier Assayas

1968 was a year of deep social and political change worldwide. In France, the Spring of 1968 witnessed the largest social movement ever experienced by the country in contemporary history. A movement that would culturally, socially and politically transform French society. To commemorate the half-centennial of May '68, the Film Series Revolution in the Air  features three films - and three different perspectives - tracing back the events that shaped a generation.

All films are in French with English subtitles.
