Example text

Seven films were to be produced between 1913 and 1914, mostly by the Spanish anarchist movie-maker Armand Guerra. Invoking the anarchists’ historical ‘memory’ and that of the workers thanks to film images, the cooperative offered an ‘educational’ form of cinema. Memory and pedagogy as weapons of struggle ‘Memory’ and ‘pedagogy’ became the two principal ideas in libertarian cinema. Thus Les Misères de l’aiguille (released 18 January 1914), the only production shot by Raphaël Clamour, with Musidora cast in the leading role, was the first militant movie to deal with and denounce the exploitation of working women, especially those working for the fashion houses.

We need only cast our minds back to the Basque Nationalist Party (PNV)’s Euzkadi (1933), the Communist Party’s Primero de mayo en Madrid or La obra revolucionaria de las hordas rojas de octubre del 34 (1936), produced by the Right in the approach to the last election campaign. [1] Similarly, parties and pressure groups managed 33 on anarchist film and video Asi Venceremos: film still 34 to establish their own networks of film halls for the screening of movies in accordance with their ideology. The Catholics had upwards of eighty confessional outlets and the Left had a similar number of projectors set up in workers’ ateneos, casas del pueblo and social centres, especially in Catalonia and Asturias.

The issue of education by means of the moving image was raising its head. What they had initially taken for an instrument for the stultification of the workers now became the focus of all their educational ambitions. After some considered thought, they realised that cinema can educate the workers much faster than the book as images seep into the consciousness that much more easily. In Switzerland, a fiefdom of anarchists ever since the exiles who had lived there in the years following the Commune, an ‘association for instruction by means of the image and cinematography’ was launched in 1908.
