  • Blow for Blow

    1972. France. Directed by Marin Karmitz. The last of Karmitz’s three features as a director, this lively bit of agitprop was a staple of left-leaning campus film societies in the 1970s. A collective enterprise that mixes professional and amateur performers, the film takes place in a clothing factory where women make up much of the workforce. When the harsh conditions become more than they can bear, the women occupy the factory and take their male boss hostage. Digital preservation courtesy MK2. In French; English subtitles. 89 min.
