This documentary was commissioned by CUF to commemorate its centenary
A challenge that was accepted by the director Joao Mendes who during 24 minutes, created a documentary which is a footage of the work promoted by CUF, whether in the factories or with their workers and respective families.
In this film, where colour is seen for the first time, the photography is the responsibility of Mario Moreira. A unique look into the hard truth of manufactories, as well as the social services promoted by the company. The original tape was restored by the National Archive of Moving Pictures (ANIM), under the cooperation protocol with CUF.
Documentary of 1962, directed by Joao Mendes.
