April 14, 2008: WAL-MART: THE HIGH COST

This feature length documentary uncovers a retail giant’s assault on families
and workers. The film dives into the deeply personal stories and everyday lives
of families and communities struggling to fight a goliath. Producer/Director
Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films take you on an extraordinary journey that
will change the way you think, feel — and shop. Running
time: 98 Minutes
April 17, 2008: THE TAKE
The Take is a Canadian
documentary film released in 2004 by the wife and husband team of Naomi Klein
and Avi Lewis. It tells the story of workers in Buenos Aires, Argentina
who reclaim control of a closed Forja auto plant where they once worked and
turn it into a worker cooperative, or as could be argued, a working model of
anarcho-syndicalism. Winner of 26 awards including the 2004 Sundance Film
Festival. Running time: 87
