Something In The Air

May 10 - May 16, 2013

(Olivier Assayas, France, 2012, 35mm, 122 min)

Olivier Assayas’ (Carlos, Summer Hours) latest is a rumination on the personal and political. In the months after the heady weeks of May ’68, a group of young people search for a way to continue the revolution they believe to be just beginning. 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. Called Apres Mai in France, consider this Assayas’ Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man.
