Marker's experiments with a militant film from 1968-70 are associated with SLON, a production workmen cooperative operating in Besançon, which was a symbol of the strike fight of the time. It was also a founding place of the Medvedkin Group that used the term 'film as ammunition' and remembered the Medvedkin's creed that a movie is not just work of a director and a cameraman, but that it can be signed by its heroes themselves. It comes as no surprise that workmen's claims expressed in Rhodia were rejected by the French communists as anarchistic. Rhodia 4/8 is a music video starring Colette Magny.
