La révolution du désir

This fascinating documentary brings to life the birth of FHAR (the Homosexual Front for Revolutionary Action) at the beginning of the 70s and asks the question of where is gay activism today. Based around the writer Françoise d'Eaubonne and the savage and brilliant Guy Hocquenghem, the captivating tale of liberating desire, sex and mentalities is recounted with intelligence and verveo. The film acts as a moving echo of the common fight of feminsts and gays as they battled together with humour, strength and incivility. With its joyous and hedonsitic call to arms : « proletarians of all countries, caress each other ! ».
The 26th novembre 1974, abortion is depenalised in France. A day many will remember, especially the principle architect behind the legislative vote.
