The film, which is rarely shown in theaters, appears in the DVD My brother Jacques, by Pierre Prévert.

Aubervilliers est un court métrage français réalisé par Éli Lotar en 1945. Le commentaire et les chansons, écrits par Jacques Prévert, sont marqués par un puissant engagement politique.

Ce film avait été commandé aux auteurs, dans l'immédiate après-guerre, par la municipalité communiste d'Aubervilliers, pour montrer l'état de délabrement dans lequel se trouvait la ville à la suite de la politique menée par la précédente équipe municipale dirigée par le pétainiste Pierre Laval.

Le film, rarement diffusé en salle, figure dans le DVD Mon frère Jacques, par Pierre Prévert.
