Half a Life

Synopsis

50 Years Later: Memories of May '68 marks the events that brought nine million French students and workers together in a general strike and a unified uprising against capitalism, American imperialism, and Gaulism. This series explores the visual language of politics and protest, at once experimental and anonymous in a diverse array of “tracts” that used filmmaking as a direct, revolutionary action. We also explore the memory of May 1968 itself through Romain Goupil’s film Mourir à 30 ans, whose blend of home movies, archival footage, and interviews documents the energy of protest and the afterlife of revolution that at times proves fatal.
