Made by politically committed film-makers to serve as agit-prop for the events of May 68, these films rely exclusively on stills rather than documentary footage, yet the sense of contrast and movement is very strong and the films very effectively make their point, they attempt to catch the spirit, rather than the fact, of the May Revolution. And although made anonymously, one can detect the hands of Godard , Marker et. al.This reel includes: No. 26 – Nous sommes tous des juifs allemands . No. 12 – La societe dans son ensemble doit se convertir en une gigantesque … No. 15 – Regardez les choses en face en 20 secondes . No. 5 – Cetait la nuit … No. 24 – Une nuit … No. 1 – Quest-ce quil fait?
