Blow It to Bits

“I’m not Santa Claus”, the French president Emmanuel Macron said to a group of striking auto workers in the centre of the country. Threatened with being laid off by the imminent closure of the factory, the workers decide to fight for their rights. Over a period of seven months, the veteran filmmaker Lech Kowalski immersed himself in their battle, showing us the confrontations and the negotiations with corporate management and the government. A passionate and disheartening fight, in which corruption and delocalization, disdain and fear, rage and dialogue, solidarity and betrayal are all seamlessly mixed together in something that has to do with us and which underscores the feeling that it is all going to be blown to pieces.
