Something In the Air
By Olivier Assayas

As part of the Film Series Revolution in the Air, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy are pleased to announce the screening of Something in the Air (Après mai) by Olivier Assayas.

In the months after the exhilarating weeks of May ’68, a group of young people search for a way to continue the revolution. For Gilles (newcomer Clément Mettayer), this means having to balance his political commitments with his desire to explore painting and filmmaking; for his girlfriend Christine (Goodbye, First Love star Lola Créton), this means throwing herself wholeheartedly into the task of organizing. Olivier Assayas (Carlos, Summer Hours) here describes the sentimental education of a generation that was too young to have been on the barricades; he brilliantly captures its explorations of new lifestyles, the arguments about strategies and tactics, and above all its music, a constant presence that becomes something like the artistic unconscious of an era. The period details are perfect, but what makes this film so special is the sense it conveys of history as lived experience.

Online registration is required for this screening.
