Something in the Air in August
Artificial Eye have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Olivier Assayas’ SOMETHING IN THE AIR for August 26th, 2013. From the press release…
Following his success with Summer Hours and Carlos, acclaimed director Olivier Assayas turns his attention to Paris in the early 1970s with this freewheeling and mesmerising portrait of the years that changed it all.
After the May ‘68 protests, Gilles, a young Parisian student, is taken in by the political and creative turmoil of the times. Through a haze of wild parties, social activism and romantic encounters, he and his friends partake in some of the most defining moments of the post-war period. But as the weight of reality pushes down on them, issues of personal responsibility and the nature of idealism will cause them to question their actions and future plans.
Extras features will include a ‘making of’ featurette, interview with Assayas and the theatrical trailer.
