Directed in 1977 and reedited in 1998, this saga of the left as seen by Chris Marker resonates in the decades following May 68. The Mitterrand years, the AIDS years... The topicality of a work that is still in play today. In three hours and two parts, Chris Marker traces ten years of history of the left, from revolts to the exercises of the state. A masterful montage of archives that uses the images of witnesses "whose work is constantly opposed to that of the powers that be, who would like us to have no memory. This memory is that of utopias and their end, of the end of the century of ideologies.  The lyrical and melancholic chronicle of a failure that weighs on the contemporary world. The background of the air is serious, as Marker says. The film consists of a montage of raw documents that cover the period from 1967 to 1977. With the voices of : François Maspero, Yves Montand, François Pérrier, Jorge Semprún, Simone Signoret, Sandra Scarnati, Laurence Cuvellier and Davos Hanish
