About the Film
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.
