The Take (2004)

Famed Canadian activist and author Naomi Klein and her husband Avi Lewis investigate Argentina’s young worker cooperative movement in this revelatory 2004 documentary film. The Take offers a look into what can happen when working class folks band together in the face of economic disaster and seize their own destinies. Margret Thatcher’s infamous claim that “there is no alternative” to neoliberal capitalism is critically undermined by this groundbreaking film.
