"I wanted to show that it was crucial not to continue with spectacle, not to go on filming the barricades because doing so was a way of playing the government's game by making films so that people could get off on the images. I simply wanted to show, in an abstract way, an analysis of what is going on (...) and to completely avoid showing the barricades just as one would avoid showing a naked girl."

-- Philippe Garrel, 
around the time of his cine-tract, 
Actualités Révolutionnaires, 1968
