​​​​​​​On vous parle de Paris: Maspero, les mots ont un sens - Chris Marker

With the documentary series "On vous parle de…" Chris Marker wanted to produce a counter-public – "contre-information." More than being just a portrait of publisher François Maspero, the episode Les mots ont un sens also answers the question of what role leftist intellectuals can play between militancy and information. 


Sochaux, 11 juin 68 (Sochaux, 11th of June 1968) - Groupe Medvedkine Sochaux
As the “Medvedkin Group”, a group of workers from Sochaux shot films about their daily lives at work and labour struggles with the support of filmmakers (including Chris Marker). Sochaux, 11 juin 68 is about a militant strike in the Peugeot factory that led to several deaths. 


Les trois-quarts de la vie (Three Quarters of a Life) - Groupe Medvedkine Sochaux
But it wasn’t just documentary techniques that were used; Les trois-quarts de la vie also stages the recruitment of workers and daily life in the Peugeot factory with obvious satirical undertones.
