"Revolution movie". French may on the front page - Due to its time setting, iconography, interconnections with the world revolution of 1968, the French May "event" is charged with visual representations, both during its unfolding and in the years and decades to come. This essay ventures a reflection on the connections between images and memory, analyzing the most significant snapshots of the French May and filtering them through the militants’ recollections, such as the images conveyed through movies or the photographs which with the years turned into icons, one for all, the ‘68 "Marianna". It follows that the image, even when not authentic, provides a key for entering the "event" and is often found in the store of mental self-representations which it has brought about and in the whole series of memories and feelings of belonging that it has aroused.
