Eight hour days, working wages, benefits and revolution make great fodder for a twenty-something kid from the suburbs whose Spotify play history is ninety percent Against Me! and Bruce Springsteen. But melodies about “revolution” and the “working class” are often romanticized for the sake of punk and rock music. But Chris Marker, French photographer and director, and his collective of revolutionaries known as the Medvedkin Group, put the tenants of a working class revolution front and center. With Icarus Films’ release of On Strike!: Chris Marker and the Medvedkin Group–which is actually two films: Be Seeing You, directed by Chris Marker, and Class of Struggle, by the Medvedkin Group–Chris Marker provides a first hand account of the day-to-day struggles of workers trampled by a capitalist system without restraint.
