M+ Screenings: Beneath the Pavement is a series of seven screenings that builds cinematic dialogue between French and Hong Kong moving image works produced in the years around May 1968, a turbulent period of social unrest marked by strikes, protests, and clashes with authority. These shorts, features, television pieces, and experimental films explore the formal and conceptual shifts in cinematic practice occurring in two distinct regional contexts. Beneath the Pavement offers a new understanding of the creative energies and motivations behind an eventful period, whose significance extends both on- and off-screen.
