The earth-shaking events of May 1968 may not have brought about the Communist revolution student protesters imagined, but the convictions of that tumultuous time in Paris (first) reverberated through Eastern Europe and the Americas, and shaped much progressive thinking ever since. João Salles (brother of Walter) has created a fascinating historical essay from footage from that time, from France, Prague, and from his mother's trip to China in 66.
«Melancholy, inspiring and evocative.» J. Hoberman, NYRB
