lyon68

May 68 did not only happen in Paris.

In Lyon, on May 24th, the social conflicts led to the first dead. The passing of Commissaire Lacroix was the point of no return, radicalised the events and contributed to sway public’s opinion.

“It” did not only happened in Paris, the several “breaks of allegiance” that came forward during this time participated to a social dynamics that set the pace in Lyon the same way as in France, Europe and the whole world.

“It” has not been useless; many of this time’s heirs are still active, even if the legacy is sometimes carefully hidden.

This film tells us the “Mai 68” in Lyon and the memory the inhabitants keep of these events.
