    In the months following the terrorist attacks in Paris, the youth has taken the night. A community has risen, that looks for belonging in a world they don’t understand and seek to change the rules. Led by new faces and unheard groups, with their values and ideals, they open a new dialog, challenge the state and get ready for a new kind of revolution.

    Matthieu Bareyre’s debut feature film Young and Alive – in competition at Locarno in the Filmmakers of the Present section – immerses us in a time and a place – a moment in which the two clash and merge, just like the gestures and words captured by the director follow and embrace each other.
