Au Coeur de Mai 68

| Part 2 |

07-Mai 68_18_3.6.jpg

The AF will be hold an exhibition & Film event about "AU COEUR DE MAI 68"

The volatile period of civil unrest in France during May 1968 was punctuated by demonstrations and massive general strikes as well as the occupation of universities and factories across France. At the height of its fervor, it brought the entire economy of France  to a virtual halt. The protests reached such a point that political leaders feared civil war or revolution; the national government itself momentarily ceased to function after President Charles de Gaulle secretly fled France for a few hours. The protests spurred an artistic movement, with songs, imaginative graffiti, posters, and slogans.

20-Mai 68_29_1.3.jpg

"May 68" affected French society for decades afterward. It is considered to this day as a cultural, social and moral turning point in the history of the country.

Date & Location

Friday December 7th at the AF location - 6:30pm

$10 member - $15 non-member

Wine reception and Q & A

NB: It is not necessary to have participated in the first event to attend this second exhibition & movie screening.
