William Klein was in the middle of the action in May 1968 – and he had his camera. This collage of his footage vividly captures events as they happened, showing how spirited debates in the Sorbonne spiraled out into street protest. Klein’s handheld camera helps us feel the urgent energy, the confusion and contradictions that characterised the heady climate of revolution. Prepare to be transported.

Joint ticket available with Mr Freedom + intro on Tue 8 May only, £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less).
