Groupe Medvedkine de Besancon
(France)

The Groupe Medvedkine Sochaux was a group of filmmakers founded in 1968, which was active in the eastern French city of Sochaux. The collective consisted of about 40 young militant workers from the local Peugeot factory as well as politically committed filmmakers, including Bruno Muel and Chris Marker. The name of the group was chosen as a homage to the work of Soviet director Alexandr Medvedkin. Another Groupe Medvedkine was active in Besançon.
