Gracie & I were going to go to a screening of this. I don’t remember what interfered with that, but I sure wish we had. It looks great. I can’t wait until it comes out.
Here’s the website and here’s the Facebook Page for SHIFT CHANGE.
This is a preview of the feature length film, which documents both the growing number of cooperatives here in North America, and also the very successful Spanish cooperative, Mondragon. It suggests much of what we’ve been talking about recently, about growing cooperatives as one somewhat transient solution to the crisis of (and the disaster that is) capitalism.
Along the same lines but focused strictly on cooperatives across Europe, check out the documentary TOGETHER, available free online.
