Les Deux Marseillaises
DIRECTOR: ANDRé S. LABARTHE AND JEAN-LOUIS COMOLLI
In the lead-up to the parliamentary elections in the Asnières district in June, 1968, as the aftershocks of nationwide upheaval were still being felt throughout France, Cinema de notre temps creator Labarthe and longtime Cahiers du cinema editor Comolli set out to document the campaign meetings, speeches, and public appearances of three competing candidates, capturing the touchy tenor of the times while quietly mourning the return to business as usual and the re-establishment of conservative order.
Les Deux Marseillaises is screening as part of the May '68: The Struggle Continues series.
Due to technical difficulties, the screenings of Les Deux Marseillaises have been postponed. Showtimes will be posted again soon.
