THE TAKE

Director: AVI LEWIS

CANADA • 2004 • COLOUR • DIGITAL VIDEO • 87 MIN


Argentina’s 2001 financial crisis is the backdrop for this documentary by Canadian filmmaker Avi Lewis and writer-producer Naomi Klein. It looks at a workers’ takeover of a car factory. When the factory is closed down, the redundant workers find ways of taking it back and making it work again, all the while battling with the courts, the police and politicians. This is a stirring documentary that raises basic questions about economics, government and the human desire for dignity.
