Something in the Air
director:
Olivier Assayas

Amidst the tumultuous student movements of 1970’s France, Gilles, who has just graduated from high school, hopes to explore his interests in art and film. However, after witnessing protests on the streets of Paris and meeting an alluring and radicalized young woman, Gilles drifts away from his artistic aspirations to join the revolutionary cause. “Made with the bittersweet clarity of hindsight and the assurance of a director in peak form, Something in the Air is Olivier Assayas' wise and wistful memory-piece on the revolutionary fervor that suffused his young adulthood.” (The Hollywood Reporter) The film was awarded Best Screenplay at the Venice Film Festival.
