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.

Event will take place in Buell Hall's East Gallery.  Event is free and open to the public.
