Film: Rendezvous At The Docks (Le Rendez Vous Des Quais )

By Paul Carpita 1955  (1 hr 15 min.)

As the US becomes entangled in another quagmire in Iraq, it is important to look at the history of labor and war. This historic film views the French war of Vietnam from the viewpoint of Marseilles dockworkers. French government officials and shipping bosses are intent on weakening the union and seek to recruit a dockworker to spy and subvert workers’ protest against the war in Vietnam. The film, which was shot by the Cinepax collective, takes a look from the inside of how workers are manipulated and the role of labor solidarity in defeating union busting.

We will also have music by Moh Alileche & fellow musicians, Joyce Todd McBride sings Brecht with Mary Lynn Morales, accordion, and Paul McBride, guitar.

There will be a discussion after the film.

July 14 (Wednesday)  7:00 PM $7.00
