JOIN US next Monday, April 23, for a screening of THE TAKE (La Toma). In suburban Buenos Aires, thirtyunemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats, and refuse to leave.
“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 beloved 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. But what shines through in the film is the simple drama of workers’ lives and their struggle: the demand for dignity and the searing injustice of dignity denied.”
Come to The Kabbalah House, 1023 Albany Avenue in Hartford, on Monday, April 23, from 7-9 pm.
