Mourir à trente ans by Romain Goupil, Documentary, 1982, 95 mins.
£2 (members) / £3
Following the disappearance of Stephane Hessel, one of the most committed French intellectual, we have chosen a new programme dedicated to commitment. From comedy, romance, documentary to history, commitment is like a chameleon and you will not be disappointed!
Mourir à trente ans by Romain Goupil is a documentary tracing back the lives of the director and his best friend Michel Recanati who committed suicide in 1978. The film brings us back to the 1960s in France, a time of protests and changes, and it deals with political commitment in troubled times.
Wine and snacks after the film.
