Our take

Armed with a portable video camera, Carole Roussopoulos intimately seizes the radical passion and anger at a historical assembly of F.H.A.R.—an organization of radical lesbian and gay activists. The unapologetic resolve to overturn heteronormative, bourgeois values is at once rousing and enduring.
