It was a strange cinematographic experience when in the years between 1967 and 1973 several filmmakers decided to focus on working in direct cooperation with labourers. It seemed as though they were giving up their own control over the film, but it is clear that it was they who shaped the pamphletic language of the labourer films. Probably the most radical was the reportage that was released under the title "Nouvelle Société" (New Society). The fifth part (Kelton) shows labourers at work in a watch factory, the sixth part (Biscuiterie Buhler) describes a woman's marriage as it falls apart under the effects of the rhythm of work, and the seventh part (Augé découpage) highlights the ever increasing tempo of work in an electronic parts factory.
