Cinéaste et ethnologue (1930-2013)
Switzerland 1978. 16mm, colour, 37 min.
The daily life of Angèle Stalder, a retired worker, handicapped. She worked for 17 years in a chocolate factory and 20 more in another factory making cardboard articles. Active all her life in Catholic unions, she always showed great courage and - because she was a woman - battled even harder to impose herself and make her voice heard. She continues to fight.
«I didnt want to be a factory worker, Id have liked to drive an engine like the Russian women who could choose mens jobs, but I became involved in union work and that became my locomotive.»
