Synopsis

Using archives, Jean-Gabriel Périot retraces the path followed by the first generation of the ‘Red Army Faction’ (RAF) and its central figures: Ulrike Meinhof, Andreas Baader, Holger Meins, Gudrun Ensslin, etc. With surgical precision, this filmic archaeology evokes a dark page in the history of European social-democracy that it is vital to reread and look at unflinchingly.
