A German Youth

A Film by Jean-Gabriel Périot

2015 - France/Switzerland/Germany - Documentary - DCP - 1.85 - 93 min.

Languages: French , German
Produced by Nicolas Brevière

In the late 1960s, the postwar generation, in direct conflict with their fathers, was trying to find its place. From this soon radicalized seething youth emerged in 1970 The Red Army Faction, a German revolutionary terrorist group founded notably by Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof. Based on archive footage, the film aims to question viewers on the significance of this revolutionary movement during its time, as well as its resonance for today’s society.
