Marking the 50th anniversary of May '68, this two-part documentary film offers firsthand accounts of those historic events from the individuals who were on the frontlines: politicians, law enforcement officers, and others who participated in the protests on the streets of Paris. The film shifts point of view from firsthand accounts to archival photographs, political posters and film footage, examining the complexities of memory and history.
