A GERMAN YOUTH (UNE JEUNESSE ALLEMANDE)
French filmmaker Jean-Gabriel Périot has screened more movies than any other director at Directors Lounge. Jean-Gabriel has been with us since the very first days, presenting around 16 films during the last years. In 2010 we had a special work show with him attending and introducing his delicate way to work with archival footage.
His latest feature film, A GERMAN YOUTH (une jeunesse allemande), tells the story of the Red Army Fraction, West-Germany, 1965-1977. A story of images and violences; again told solely through original imagery from that time.
The German version, Eine Deutsche Jugend, 93 minutes, is streaming online this weekend (till Nov 20) at German news magazine Der Spiegel.
Highly recommended for our German speaking friends.
