Synopsis
In the early 1960s, at the start of the French New Wave, Richard Roud called Chris Marker, Alain Resnais and Agnes Varda "the Left Bank group," noting their rejection of bourgeois values, their commitment to the literary and plastic arts, their risk-taking approach to filmmaking, their love of cats, and their left-wing politics. This chronicle is a 3-hour overview of the success and failure of the left during the 1960s and 70s as documented from interwoven footage from the Vietnam War, May '68 in Paris, the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, the Shah of Iran, Regis Debray, Salvador Allende, et alia.
