PETER WATKINS RETROSPECTIVE

Reenactment of the Commune of Paris, 1871. Everyone is hysterical. Reporters don’t leave anything out of one of the most important moments in modern history: the capitulation of the French army, the refusal to hand over the canons, the many new laws, the revolution in education and faith, and the final defeat.
