BORN IN '68
Written and directed by Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau
An epic tale of love (from the directors of COCKLES & MUSCLES and DROLE DE FELIX) spanning 40 years from 1968 to 2008.
Catherine, Yves and Hervé are students and they love each other in a perect love triangle, but the infamous Paris student uprising of May 1968 turns their lives upside down. Filled with a sense of communal utopia, they move to an abandoned farm in the countryside. However, thier years of free love are short-lived, as their ambitions and pursuit of personal fulfilment leads to choices that will tear them apart.
When Catherine’s generation gives birth to another, equally revolutionary wave of excitable young adults it becomes apparent that they embody a world very different to the one their parents were borne from. Between the end of Communism and the birth of gay liberation, cracks begin to appear in the militant heritage that moulded the generation before them. Through their differences, relationships are severed, cultivated and reconciled against the backdrop of a series of political and historical events that changed the world for ever.
