« Mai 68, un étrange printemps » is a series of two documentary movies by Dominique Beaux, a French historian and film director. This series depicts various testimonies of initiators of Mai 68: politicians, actors from political parties, the civil service and field units.

Through the original testimonies of these rarely approached protagonists, the two documentaries enable us to go back in Paris during the year 1968 and help us to better understand the state of the social order at the time.
