Haut Les Filles

Haut Les Filles

An alternative reading of French rock history is given in Oh les filles (Haut les filles), from French journalist-turned-director Francois Armanet, and as the title suggests, it privileges a female point-of-view. The non-fiction feature posits that rock-and-roll history did not start with Elvis Presley in the early 1950s but with Edith Piaf’s heart-rending rendition of Hymne a l’Amour in late 1949, on the day her lover, the boxer Marcel Cerdan, died in a plane crash.

Director: François Armanet
Writers: François Armanet, Bayon
