From 1967 until 1977, Chris Marker veils his individual signature as a film director. He also plays a crucial behind-the-scenes role in facilitating recognition of other people's work. This is a period of heightened militancy. One of Marker's main roles as enabler during the late 1960s and 1970s was born of the co-directed film À bientôt j'espère on the strike at the Rhodiaceta factory in Besançon. This Society for Launching New Works (SLON) film spawned the idea for the Medvedkin groups, factory workers initially based in Besançon and then also in Sochaux who made their own films. On vous parle du Brésil: Tortures is a powerful beginning to Marker's On vous parle films, which are as uncompromising in their portrayal of the horrors of dictatorial regimes as they are unstinting in their support of the revolutionary activity that aims continually to undermine them.
