Director and artist Ulrike Ottinger gives the personal documentary a historical turn: a memoir of the 1960s, centred on her life in Paris from 1962, featuring her encounters with Dadaist and Surrealist artists, her trips to the Cinémathèque Française, Claude Lévi-Strauss’s lectures and her friends’ political activism, to the background of the city’s teeming street life and café society. Ottinger simultaneously also addresses the demons of her own country’s history. An exuberant and rich film that reminisces past events with a contemporary eye.
