THEATR Mwldan Film Society presents Something in the Air (Après Mai) (15) on October 6, 5.50pm.
Olivier Assayas | 2012 | France | 122’
Following his recent critical triumphs, Assayas' semi-autobiographical new feature is a vibrant, incisively crafted story of a young man's artistic awakening in the politically turbulent French student movement of the early '70s.
Gilles is a graduating high school student in Paris, deeply involved in the counterculture of the time, who finds himself pulled into ever more dangerous political protests by the people around him, including his radicalized girlfriend.
Illuminating and elegiac, Assayas' story celebrates that thrilling, evanescent moment in history when young people could feel revolution just within their grasp.
