IN THE INTENSE NOW explores the revolutions of 1968 as they unfolded across four different countries and their political environments: France, Czechoslovakia, China, and Brazil. Narrated in first person by the director, the film reflects on that which is revealed by footage of the French students' uprising in May of 1968; the images captured by amateurs during the invasion of Czechoslovakia in August of the same year, when forces led by the Soviet Union put an end to the Prague Spring; the scenes that a tourist -the director's mother- filmed in China in 1966, the year of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution; and footage from Salles' own childhood in Brazil, during the establishment and rule of a repressive military dictatorship.
