Based on material that emerged during the occupation of the arena in the summer of 1976, the film shows the organization of collective work, the negotiations with the city and community and finally the demolition of the buildings.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
An important political film, not only from the historical point of view as documentation of the events and their impact on the social awareness of the people, but also in relation to the cooperative concept and the use of archive material.
Solidarity and direct action. Perhaps the number of transitional montage+songs make me lose my attention now and again, but it teaches the present about what it takes to and how we should organize now. Always, the government will use the “law” they reinterpret according to how it suits them against the people. One of my favorite moments was the shoutout to Chile, which at the time, had just gone through the coup.
