This film evokes an apocalyptic vision. Once America's fourth largest city, Detroit was built by the car for the car, with the first freeways, suburbs, and shopping centres, it embodied the American dream. Now it's a dystopic city.

The idealism and optimism of young people in Finland in the 1960s and '70s created a youth culture where a better world seemed just around the corner and socialism seemed like a real alternative. Brimming with music, archive footage and contemporary interviews, Revolution captures the spirit of an age, and asks the poignant question, what happens to the idealism of youth?
