Rendezvous On The Docks (75 min.) French with English Subtitle
By Paul Carpita (1922-2009)
The revulsion against the French military occupation of Indochina led to a dockworkers strike in Marseilles in 1953.
Dockers found that caskets of soldiers were arriving while weapons were being shipped out to supply the French occupations from Vietnam to other countries in Asia.
The film using actual dockers, much like Ken Loach’s style, also uses real footage on the docks of Marseilles and debates in the working class. It depicts the growing anti-imperialist anger against the wars and a strike to stop the war.
Presentation following the film by ILWU Local 10 retired longshoremen Jack Heyman.
