Marker was a committed socialist, an unflagging champion of workers’ rights and leftist causes, as seen in this program of works that depict scenes from Europe’s class struggle. In French with English subtitles.

 

 
2084 (1984)

Run time: 10min

 

Marker commemorates the 100th anniversary of the French workers’ rights movement with this cyber-punk sci-fi short set another 100 years into the future.

 
Be Seeing You (1968)

Directed by Chris Marker & Mario Marret
Run time: 39min

 

A 1967 worker’s strike at a textile plant in Besançon presages the rising anti-capitalist sentiment in France that would explode in full force a year later.

 
 
 
Class of Struggle (1969)

Directed by the Medvedkin Group
Run time: 37min

 

Upon learning that textile workers were unhappy with the portrayal in Be Seeing You, Marker furnished them with filmmaking equipment and basic technical know-how. The result is “one of the finest examples of the politically engaged French documentary cinema of the late sixties” (Film Comment).
