A film by Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein
To celebrate the United Nations International Year Of Co-operatives 2012, the Wales Co-operative Centre is screening ‘The Take’.
In the wake of Argentina’s spectacular economic collapse of 2001, Buenos Aires becomes a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment. Thirty unemployed auto-parts workers, part of a daring new movement of worker co-operatives, walk into their idle factory and refuse to leave. All they want to do is re-start the silent machines. But this simple act – the take – has the power to turn the globalisation debate on its head.
“A stirring, idealistic documentary!”
New York Times
“An eye-opening, possibility-widening documentary! If Michael Moore could calm down just a little and maintain a watchful distance, The Take suggests the kind of film he’d make!”
Take this rare opportunity to see the film in Wales, be inspired and join the discussion with other co-operators.
Join us for a drink from 6.00pm – the film will be screened at 6.30pm. Tickets are free, but availability is limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
