Sous les pavés, la plage + Mourir a trente ans

Fifty years ago the establishment seemed on the verge of collapse, from Paris to Mexico City. Cobblestones were ripped from the pavements, under the paving stones lay the beach. A programma that explores how the spirit of 1968 was reflected by filmmakers. With activist films by Jean-Denis Bonan and Romain Goupil. Roel Janssen, journalist, author and eye-witness of the student uprising in Paris in 1968, is our guest this evening.

1968 is lodged in the public mind as the year in which the establishment was seriously challenged. There were riots in Paris to protest the stifling bureaucratic and educational culture at University, Renault factory workers demanded co-determination and in ‘magical centre’ Amsterdam plans were hatched for the establishment of the Orange Free State and the occupation of the Maagdenhuis, the university’s administrative centre.

Filmmakers played a role of major importance in 1968. Jean-Denis Bonan and Romain Goupil saw themselves as activists. They were among the radical left filmmakers who – often sailing under the flag of collectivism – saw film as an instrument to raise political awareness. In their hands they carried not only bricks but also the agile and light 16 mm camera, the companion of a generation who claimed the right to shape their own lives. 

Le joli mois de mai Jean-Denis Bonan FR 1968 bw/w 34’

The first assessment of the events of 1968 was provided by Atelier de recherche cinématographique (ARC), a collective in which Bonan played a key role. There is footage of demonstrations and riots, shot in the heat of the battle. A portrait of the ‘enragés’, the angry young people who challenged the faded authority of teachers, employers and politicians. The banners read: ‘Enterrement non / REVOLUTION oui’ (No to Internment, yes to Revolution).

Roel Janssen about his Paris experiences

Economy and finance journalist Roel Janssen’s latest book ‘1968: “You Say You Want a Revolution”’ takes you back to the heady days of 1968, days which Janssen witnessed himself. In EYE he will talk about the worldwide uprising that was not a revolution but did bring about a radical cultural change.

Mourir à trente ans Romain Goupil FR 1982 95’

Goupil, a former Trotskyist and a convinced soixante-huitard, provided a moving portrait of a friendship based on political idealism. The revolution as a friendship project: Goupil and Michel Recanati met in 1965 and experienced the events of 1968 side by side. The friendship ended ten years later when Recanati committed suicide. Goupil looks back in a personal and political essay. The barriacdes were sexy: the young protesters climbed them to impress the girls… (French spoken, Dutch subtitled)
