Cinema Action also used the title, Working Class Films and its politics were clearly Marxist and revolutionary although not aligned with those of any party or formal organisation. Films were designed to provide an analysis of struggles and to encourage future action.
The aim was to make films on political activism and/or working class life and to do so by working so closely with participants that they would share control over the content. A direct, unmediated quality makes their work stand out from much contemporary political cinema. Not a Penny on the Rent (1969), attacking proposed council rent increases, is an early example. A later, more developed film is UCS1 (1971), a record of the work-in at the Upper Clyde Shipyard and a unique document as all other press and television were excluded. It uses especially effectively the approach of letting those directly involved express themselves without commentary.
