SYNOPSIS

Director Lech Kowalski caught a firecracker moment – French auto workers threaten to blow up a factory in a desperate attempt to keep their jobs. Of this moment Kowalski has commented: “A mixture of blues and rock and roll: that is the secret of a successful rebellion. When I arrived with my camera at the GM&S car factory, threatened to be shut down, I felt that something exceptional was about to happen. And so it was: lyrics written by workers on the verge of collapse, music composed by people determined to break all the rules. With enough volume to attract the media. His working-class concert spread like wildfire throughout France. And there I was, camera in hand, making my film thanks to the lyricism unleashed by these men and women. From a distance, but with them.”
