Climage(3-3) - Three films by Alex Mayenfisch


L'usine (DVD français)

Texte presents nine films of the Lausanne's filmmaker group Climage. This group has now been making social, cultural and historical films for about twenty years. Alex Mayenfisch has been following social conflicts of the present and the past. L'USINE makes the portraits of the boss and the workers in a factory where the paternalism is everywhere. CHRONIQUE D'UNE BONNE INTENTION is testing out the trainsing projects that the state dispenses for unemployed people. LA CONQUETE DU TEMPS LIBRE is telling us the story of the battles and the changements of mentality that were needed to get paid holidays "paid for doing nothing".
