QUAND LES FEMMES ONT PRIS LA COLERE
Year of production : 1977 Country : FRANCE Length : 75 minutes
The action takes place in a metallurgical factory that was part of the Pechiney-Ugine-Külhman trust in Couëron, Loire-Atlantique, in 1975. To show their solidarity with their husbands on strike, the workers' wives invaded the director's office and within two hours obtained what they had been denied for months. But the management pressed charges and the twelve wives were accused of false imprisonment. The mobilisation then widened further. The women called on the Bretagne Cinema Production Unit (UPCB) to make a film about their struggle. Narrating the courageous action of the women's solidarity with the factory strikers and the emergence of a collective awareness, both feminist and working-class, the film is also an echo chamber sensitive to the aspirations of the twelve women who were charged.
