Class of Struggle (1969)

Cinema is not a magic.

It is a technic and a science.

A technic born from a science and set to a will.

Will that have the workers to release themselves.

In 1967, Chris Marker and Mario Marret (under the aegis of SLON) produced À BIENTÔT J’ESPÈRE, which documented a strike and factory occupation—the first in France since 1936—by textile workers at the Rhodiaceta textile plant in Besançon, the goals of which prefigured many of the demands that would come to define May 1968.
