Vanderbilt University and Duke University (in conjunction with the Alliance Française de Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) will host an exhibition of previous unseen material on the May ’68 French student and labor protests featuring 40 images from photographer Philippe Gras and a 2-part documentary by filmmaker Dominque Beaux.

The exhibition, entitled Au cœur de Mai 68, is a collaboration between the association des Amis de Philippe Gras and les Films des quatre Planètes. It features 43 previously unpublished images of the May ‘68 protests taken by acclaimed photographer Philippe Gras and discovered after his death in 2007. The photography exhibition is accompanied by the 2-part documentary film Mai 68: une étrange printemps featuring first-person accounts by politicians, union representatives, and law enforcement.

Au cœur de mai 68 will be on display at the Vanderbilt University Law School ( 131 21st Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203) starting on April 30 and at the Maison Française de Raleigh ( 5510 Munford Rd, Raleigh, NC 27612) throughout the month of May.
