L'Imagination au Pouvoir

In May 1968 the students of Paris began to rip up cobblestones to throw at the authorities; this, with other disturbances elsewhere in Europe, made it seem for a while as if a new, youth-led, Europe-wide revolution was in the offing. The movement found its most effective modes of expression in music and comic-books. Imagination became the watchword, and provided fertile soil for a mature style of comic authorship and production, wholly adult in tone. The Euro-comic at last broke through the barricades of intellectual opinion - which had hitherto regarded it as a mere consumer product - and so came, at last, to be viewed as a cultural phenomenon in its own right, thanks in part to the increasing importance and authority of the scriptwriters. The film includes interviews with Quino, Uderzo, Gotlib, M oebius and Druillet, and features Valentina, Corto Maltese, Mafalda, Sturmtruppen and Hom.
