"The Landless" ("Los Sin Tierra"): Part homage to the “world’s most successful people’s movement” and part condemnation of the social conditions that gave rise to it, Miguel Barrios’s film traces the rise of Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement (MST), whose strategy is to peacefully and legally take over and set up encampments on unproductive land, which is then redistributed among the occupying families. The battle has been hard-fought, as many landowners have organized themselves into paramilitary groups. Over 1600 workers have been killed in the last 15 years. "The Landless", produced by Pedro Almodóvar, shows history being made by the most impoverished residents of a country that has the highest rate of economic inequality in the world. 75 minutes, 2003.

Charlotte Casey of Friends of the MST will speak and lead an open discussion after the film.
