Our goal is to expose the importance of audiovisual intervention in social research in the area of work towards the ethnographic record by moving images. The video sociographic as social activism contributes to create a visual field of critical reflection on the social and symbolic practices of workers through the image. Ethnography of the audiovisual work implies new perspectives in terms of epistemological investigation of social activism and audiovisual as action research. We seek to present the results of exposure produced a documentary video about auto workers (Factory AutoEuropa-Portugal).
