cooperative / food / social issue

In the middle of an economic crisis, in the shadow of Wall Street, an institution that represents a less well-known American tradition is booming. The Park Slope Food Coop: a cooperative supermarket where all 16,000 members work 3 hours per months to earn the right to buy the best food in New York at incredibly low prices.

The success of this cooperative is bad news for capitalism and agro-alimentary business, and an opportunity to change the food production and distribution systems.

A Q&A with the film producer, Hernan Mazzeo, will follow the screening. 

Screened within the section SUSTAINABLE AND SOLIDARITY ECONOMY, in partnership with Terra Mileniul III.
