This documentary tells the story of thirty employees who – in the wake of Argentina’s dramatic economic collapse in 2001 – walk into their factory, roll out sleeping mats, and refuse to leave. They’re part of a daring new movement of workers who are occupying bankrupt businesses and creating jobs in the ruins of the failed system. But their success is far from secure. Like every workplace occupation, they have to run the gauntlet of courts, cops and politicians who can either give their project legal protection or violently evict them from the factory.

Q&A with Kayla, founder of the Democracy @ Work – West LA Action Group, a passionate advocate for economic justice, about how the worker coop model can be used to run forms of local government, for example a neighborhood council.

Big Sunday has worked with LAMP Community and OPCC in all kinds of ways, including providing welcome baskets full of housewares for scores of residents being moved into permanent housing.
