Remou-Ménage Dans La Sous-Traitance

“Big Sweep Up In Subcontracting”

Ivora Cusack | France | 360° et même plus film collective | 2008 | 70 min

March 2002, Paris. Cleaners doing subcontracted work in Accor hotels go on strike. Most of the strikers are women with West African origins and are fighting for their rights for the first time in their life. Shot over a 4-year period, the film outlines different struggles where, with few resources but a tenacious will, collectively organized individuals disrupt the law of submissiveness prevailing in the world of work, particularly in subcontracted work.

The 360° et même plus film collective was founded in 2005 in Marseilles (France). It produces documentaries, experimental films and more generally visual and/or sound artworks outside the film and TV industries, with a will to decompartmentalize genres and formats. By bringing together ideas, skills and equipment, it develops independent audiovisual practices while striving to create viable and solidarity-based economical conditions.
