Up' Rising 68
In May 1968, France experienced yet another revolutionary moment. Students and workers entered a general strike, action committees were formed, people were engaging in debates in from of factories, and there was fighting in the streets. Contemporary footage creates an epic fresco of events during which the energy of utopian ideals helped shake the society.
Michel Andrieu (1940) and Jacques Kébadian (1940) are French directors who took active part in the events of 1968 and the material used to make this film is their authentic footage from May of that year.
