UNE JEUNESSE ALLEMANDE
The federal republic of the 1960s and its youth: upheaval, disillusionment, politicisation, and radicalisation. Without commentary and using solely archive material, this skilfully assembled film conveys the rise and fall of the RAF with its sights always on the present.

His award-winning short films, which are composed solely of archive material, feature captivating soundtracks and have made Périot a sought-after guest on the international festival circuit.
