Grands Soirs & Petits Matins (1978 ) extract
Directed by William Klein. With Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Renaud, Alain Resnais.

On March 22, 1968, a group of students occupied the administrative offices at the University of Nanterre, in the west of Paris, providing the spark for a conflagration that would develop from simple demands for student rights to revolution.

Screenings in London and Madrid commemorating the fortieth anniversary of the revolutionary protest events of May 1968 in France , shows filmmakers’ desire to document political events alternatively, taking direct revolutionary action through cinema and inventing new film forms along the way.
