Cinéma du Réel - International documentary film festival

For another ’68

For another ’68

Sarah Maldoror, Monangambee, 1969

The purpose of this program is to deconstruct the ’68 mythology and make it resonate elsewhere. This journey will bring us to Mexico, Palestine, the United States, South America, India and Africa. A social uprising always elicits on revolution of artistic forms: we consider ’68 as the generator of the most radical and innovative documentary cinema. Thus, in this program, experimental cinema is melded into "ciné-tracts", artist films into fiction films, theatrical performances into filmic essays and guerilla-films into film poems.
