The take: Occupy, resist, produce. (2004)
December 4, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
Director: Avi Lewis
Writer: Naomi Klein
“We have an occupied business here. We are unemployed workers. If we say “please don’t evict us,” we’re dead. Forget polite government lobbying. It’s all about direct action and direct democracy!”
In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines. Armed only with slingshots and an abiding faith in shop-floor democracy, the workers face off against the bosses, bankers and a whole system that sees their factories as nothing more than scrap metal for sale. With The Take, director Avi Lewis, one of Canada’s most outspoken journalists, and writer Naomi Klein, author of the international bestseller No Logo, champion a radical economic manifesto for the 21st century.
