Synopsis:
Inspired by the student revolts of 1968, Ulrike Meinhof and Fusako Shigenobu left Germany and Japan in the early seventies in search of world revolution. They trained with Palestinian freedom fighters and became the most notorious "terrorists" of their time, as leaders of the Baader Meinhof Group and the Japanese Red Army. Packed with extraordinary archive footage, Children of the Revolution sees journalists Bettina Rdhl and May Shigenobu explore the lives of their mothers, Ulrike and Fusako. Bettina was kidnapped when her mother went underground. May spent her first 28 years without a name, living incognito in constant fear of assassination.
With capitalism once more in crisis and revolution sweeping the Arab world, we ask: what were they fighting for and what have we learned?
