"LORSQUE LE BATEAU DE M.LEON DESCENDIT LA MEUSE POUR LA PREMIERE FOIS"

Synopsis

Leon Masy goes in search of future activists with the boat he has built in his garage. Sailing on the Meuse through a landscape of factory cities, he is back in the landscape of a strike: the 1960 strike, when the lights of a rebel area had for the last time been seen on the river’s canal, and when, also for the last time, he thought his utopian ideas would become reality.

Between the activist he was 20 years ago and his future that he is searching for, the boat trip begins. A journey between the Past and the Future : will he again find his own destiny through the images of the 1960 activist?
