Los Angeles Filmforum presents
1968: May Days (Grands soirs et petits matins), by William Klein
Sunday, May 27, 2018, 7:30 pm
At the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90028
Part of 1968: Visions of Possibilities

A documentary about May 1968. Shot in black and white with a hand-held camera, this is the most precious, balanced and disturbing account we have of the spirit of May '68.
At the request of students studying at the Sorbonne, William Klein filmed events in the Latin Quarter of Paris. This footage was intended to be used as part of an umbrella film about May 1968 which, due to multiple dissensions, could never be completed at the time. The film is given over to the people, students, militants, union activists, those who in daily life barely have any contact with each other who can suddenly express themselves. We listen to workers, housewives, waiters, store owners, immigrants, school-children, pensioners, dissatisfied yuppies, repentant bosses, angry young men and women of every type and political tendency, whose passionate discussions ebb and flow across the city. Good intentions, rumors, revelations, wild dreams and speeches, incisive and far-fetched analyses, dramatic turns of events, plots, confessions, crises of conscience, good and bad trips and psychodramas. Talking and talking into delirium.

A consummate street photographer, William Klein dived into the middle of les événements of May 68 in France. But instead of documenting the action, with its barricades and running battles, he focused on the utopian rhetoric of revolution uttered in discussions, crowded meetings, and through megaphones. Blink and youll miss Alain Resnais, Jacques Rivette, Marguerite Duras and other notables amidst the thronged engagés.  In French with English subtitles
