Amongst the glamour of the Berlinale Festival, activists organised their own Gala of the Precarious Perspectives last Saturday. They celebrated the stars who remain unseen during the ten day festival: catering staff, cleaners, ticket sellers, and technicians who work for 6 euro per hour or less. One of the awards was presented to the works council of the Cinemaxx chain. Through a short but intense strike, it has won a collective agreement, which is considered exceptional in the sector.
