Are you ready to Fire the Boss?
Argentinian workers took over bankrupt workplaces there and
are running them democratically. A political thriller, "The Take" is
one answer to the question posed by critics and supporters of
radical movements:
"We know what you’re against, but what are you for?”
It’s about sharing tactics. Some in Argentina’s movement
of recovered companies call it “Zapatismo for the cities”.

Also screening a short film on the amazing Argentinian,
PATRICIA ISASA, now an architect who got her torturers put in jail.
She was arrested and jailed for 2 and a half years -
raped and tortured at age 16 for being an honor
student. Those around her were killed and dropped into the sea.
She has persisted now under a better government in Argentina.
