En mars 1967 à Besançon, une grève éclate aux établissements Rhodiaceta qui font partie d’une chaîne d’usines de textiles dépendant du trust Rhône-Poulenc. Cette grève a pris un aspect inhabituel par son refus de dissocier le plan culturel du plan social. Les revendications mises en avant ne concernaient plus seulement les salaires ou la sécurité de l’emploi, mais le mode de vie que la société imposait, impose à la classe ouvrière.
Today, some 80 years after France's Popular Front, shouldn’t we be watching these two collective films as a lesson in how to doubt together? Made in 1984, 2084 reflects on trade union freedom, and its outlook for the future. Labour activists filmed back in 1967 predict the movement later to come: Be Seeing You. Here, Chris Marker is still standing strong in defence of a certain persistence of vision, to watch, listen and act together towards building a fairer future.
