YOUNG & ALIVE

Matthieu Bareyre | France | 2018 | 94 min.
O.V. French subtitle in Spanish and English

We’re young, and we’re alive. That’s why we go out on the street, on endless nights without sleep. The demonstration and the party meld, rage and joy coexist. The street is ours, so is the future. The days in Paris from the attack on Charlie Hebdo up to the presidential elections, in that particular May 68 of the 21st century portrayed in a first work that won the Europa Cinemas Label Award in Locarno.
