A German Youth

Jean-Gabriel Périot is the author of a resolutely political cinematographic oeuvre. He works on the question of memory and violence and its mechanisms through films often made up of archival footage. At the heart of this retrospective cycle dedicated to the filmmaker, two explosive short film programmes reveal a part of his body of work which consists of some thirty short films and videos. The perfect opportunity to discover his two feature films: "A German Youth" (2015), about the Red Army Faction, and "Summer Lights" (2016), about Japanese atomic bomb survivors.
