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. http://www.thetake.org/. Running time: 87
A film series hosted by
Building Better Neighborhoods, COPE, Jim Hamm Productions and SFU Public Interest
Each film will be introduced by community activists who will facilitate
discussion after the screenings.
