Details on the films:

Another World is Possible

In 2002, 51,000 people from 131 countries gathered at the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Covered extensively by international press, the Forum was barely mentioned by US media. This film presents a sampling of the issues and events at this inspiring gathering.

Don’t Give Up Your Voice

Argentina elected its Trump, Mauricio Macri, a year before we elected ours. The two are quite similar in the tone of their campaigns and the policies they are promoting once in office. But Argentines are resilient, and they have fought right wing governments before. The film looks at the widespread and creative resistance to Macri’s policies – in organized labor, at worker co-ops and street protests, in theater and music. The film offers instructive parallels with the situation in the US, while illustrating the power of collective action.
