Mixing personal stories, political history, revolutionary propaganda and film theory, artist Eric Baudelaire illuminates the idealism and radicalism of left-wing extremist movements of the 1970s by interweaving the stories of two of its protagonists: May Shigenobu, daughter of the founder of the Japanese Red Army, and Masao Adachi, the revered Japanese director who gave up cinema to take up arms.

The project was cancelled (Antonioni shot Zabriskie Point instead), but he did publish his ideas for the film.” In this brilliant documentary, filmmaker Eric Baudelaire remakes Antonioni’s lost film through photographs, real life anecdotes, correspondences and critical discourse.
