À bientôt, j'espère

Directed by Chris Marker | Written by Chris Marker

1967, one year before may '68. The strike at the Rhodiaceta textile plant in Besançon sounds like the rehearsal of a rising to come. Indeed for the first time ever, the workers' claims are not only higher wages or better working conditions but also better living conditions. They, first and foremost ,say no to the lifestyle capitalism wants to impose on them. One more year to go and the whole country of France will imitate the strikers of Besançon.
