Godard made an 8mm, feature-length documentary on the events of summer
1968 in Paris. It was, when I saw it in summer 1969, untitled. As it was
also one of the most unwatchable films ever made (by the time the
screening ended at Melnitz Hall, UCLA there were two hundred people in the
lobby and about a dozen, besides me, left inside), I have not given it
much thought since. The only reason I wanted to see it was that I was in
Paris in summer, 1968, and while "terrible" things may indeed have
happened in Prague, Chicago, and other parts of the world that summer, I
find it curious that Prof. de la Motte applies that adjective to the
events in Paris and the entire year.
