Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

In 1968, Ulrike Meinhof wrote: “The fun is over: a protest is when I say I don’t like this and that. Resistance is when I see to it that things that I don’t like no longer occur.” Two years later, she would come to lead the Red Army Fraction along with Andreas Baader. How did it get from extreme A, in which a young Marxist woman vindicated self-defense without forgetting that “the value of a human being is somewhat different to that of broken windows,” to extreme B, which led to a body count of 34? A German Youth could help us find an answer. Throughout his filmography, Jean-Gabriel Périot has always laid out reflections as lucid as they unsettling on the way violence has been present in the great changes suffered by humanity. His first feature is a crushing essay at a thriller tempo, constructed with a huge amount of archive footage from a period of upheaval in the history of post-WWII Germany, a reminder of the sometimes unsolvable (and still current) conflict between ideals and direct action.
