English Original Version Subtitled in French + INTRODUCTION

Intending at the outset to make a campaign film for the unions, the Collective was forced to turn to new forms – rhythmic insertion of black spacing, asynchronous voice and image, slow motion, silence – in order to represent the forces at work. The fusion of political documentary with a rigorous reflection on the materiality of film and the problems of representing class struggle.
