Three films include:

* 5 Factories (Spanish; English subtitles), 80 min, Germany 2005/2006?.
About 5 factories under different models of "worker control": state co-run today or self-organised, all had been abandoned by their private owners. The movie is kind of an uncritical propaganda thing by a German journalist, but interesting anyway.

* "Gli ultimi fuoci" (English and German subtitles), Italy 2005, 60 min.
Documentary made of interviews from 2004: Italian ex-workers tell about how they as young workers mostly from the countryside entered the factories near Venice, Itlay, in the 1960s only to find themselves in the hell of aluminum and chemical production with all its health hazards. They developed their own organisation after the union lets them down and start fighting not only for money but against the unsafe working conditions and for general liberation...

* "Finally got the message", 60 min, USA 1970.
About the Black revolutionary union movement in the Detroit area (Ford Revolutionary Union Movement FRUM, Dodge DRUM, Chrysler CRUM, ELRUM...). Partially hard to understand (due to technical problems: a DVD from a video from an 8 mm from 1970?) but something hardly anyone knows about today. Especially interesting in the context of racism/anti-racism here in NOLA.
