Mourir à 30 ans / DEATH AT 30
It Happened Yesterday

Michel Récanati was a militant leader in the May ?68 riots in Paris who continued his political activity beyond the disturbances. He was imprisoned for a short while in 1973. Disillusioned after the failure of the demonstrations and the death of the only woman he had loved, his life seemed to change from a period of hope and activism to one of bottomless despair ending in his suicide in 1978. His friend and militant companion Romain Goupil directed this documentary about Récanati's life.
ROMAIN GOUPIL Screenwriter, actor and director. Activist in the Young Communist Revolutionaries in Paris, news of his expulsion from the Liceo Condorcet for political agitation in 1968 spread like wildfire, causing not a little controversy. He was friends with Michel Récanati, a prominent member of the May '68 student movement, whose suicide led him to make Mourir à 30 ans. He had previously been a cameraman on Cousteau's team and an assistant to Polanski on Tess (1979). He has directed six films.
