The Take (2004)

17 May

87m; Argentina/Canada

Director: Avi Lewis

Cast: Naomi Klein, Matilde Adorno, Michel Camadessus and Bill Clinton

Synopsis: Argentina underwent an economic collapse in 2001, leaving behind bankrupties and massive unemployment. A few years later, in Buenos Aires, 30 unemployed auto-parts workers walk into an idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. They’re part of a daring movement of workers trying to recover and re-create their jobs. With The Take, outspoken journalist Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein, author of No Logo, have crafted a radical economic manifesto for the 21st century.
