This documentary examines how the Nuit Debout (Arise at Night) protest that took place in March 2016 in Paris turned into a kind of movement in the spirit of Occupy Wall Street, a new form of democratic Assembly, without a leader or elected representatives, in which each person was given an opportunity to speak and participate in the collective.

Support for this series on the CINEMA OF RESISTANCE is provided by the Knapp Family Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S.  Additional support provided by our co-sponsors at Columbia: the School of the Arts; MA Program in Film Studies at the School of the Arts;  European Institute, Sakip Sabanci Center for Turkish Studies; Heyman Center for the Humanities, Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Theory, Institute for Research on Women, Gender and Sexuality, Committee on Global Thought, and Columbia Global Centers.
