The Odd Spring of May 68 Screening - France-Atlanta 2018 As part of France-Atlanta 2018's programming, we will screen filmmaker Dominique Beaux’s “The Odd Spring of May 68,” a beautifully woven series of interviews which tell the story of the protests through the eyes of politicians, police and those “on the other side of the barricade". The films interviewees, many of whom are speaking publicly for the first time about their role in the protests, offer a new perspective on the events of Mai 68. Through their testimonies, they expose the relative strengths and weaknesses of this revolutionary movement that shook the core of French society.

Don your cape, cowl, or costume of choice and join Party with the Past as we journey to the Flatiron Building and Broad Street Boardwalk in Downtown Atlanta. Standing at 11 stories tall, this gorgeous 1897 construction sitting at the corner of Peachtree and Broad Streets was Atlanta’s first free-standing steel-framed skyscraper! Now known as FlatironCity, the recently refurbished building is a fantastic example of adaptive-reuse in Atlanta. During the restoration, Flatiron City payed special attention to historic preservation of this iconic Atlanta landmark while creating a vibrant work environment for entrepreneurs and start-ups in Atlanta. At Party with the Past, hop on a walking tour and let your cape flow in the wind as you learn about the history of the Woodruff Park area or hear about the history of Atlanta’s first skyscraper at our 7:30 pm history chat. Be sure to grab a burger from the Mix’d Up food truck, who’ll be serving up food for purchase, to complement that cold brew from the cash bar. A very special thanks to our friends at Central Atlanta Progress for partnering with us to make this event happen and for all of the work they do for our city. They make us want to #bedowntown. As always, Party with the Past is free to attend, but be sure to RSVP so we know you’re coming.
