Director Avi Lewis, one of Canada's most outspoken journalists, and writer Naomi Klein, author of the international bestseller No Logo, champion a radical economic manifesto for the 21st century. In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines. This simple act has the power to turn the globalisation debate on its head. In the wake of Argentina's dramatic economic collapse in 2001, Latin America's most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment. The Forja auto plant lies dormant until its former employees take action. They're part of a daring new movement of workers who are occupying bankrupt businesses and creating jobs in the ruins of the failed system. But Freddy, the president of the new worker's co-operative, and Lalo, the political powerhouse from the Movement of Recovered Companies, know that their success is far from secure. Like every workplace occupation, they have to run the gauntlet of courts, cops and politicians who can either give their project legal protection or violently evict them from the factory. The story of the workers' struggle is set against the backdrop of a crucial presidential election in Argentina, in which the architect of the economic collapse, Carlos Menem, is the front-runner. Armed only with slingshots and an abiding faith in shop-floor democracy, the workers face off against the bosses, bankers and a whole system that sees their beloved factories as nothing more than scrap metal for sale.

Peu à peu, des collectifs d'ouvriers investissent les usines vides.

"The Take" suit le parcours d'une de ces coopératives, de sa décision de rouvrir une usine de fonderie au verdict final de la justice, sur fond d'élections présidentielles."

  • "En 2001, l'Argentine se retrouve en faillite, résultat des politiques de libéralisation de l'économie mises de l'avant dans les années 1990 par le président Carlos Menem, qui suivait à la lettre les recommandations du Fonds monétaire international. Du jour au lendemain, la population la plus prospère de l'Amérique latine sombre dans le chômage. Sans se laisser abattre, des groupes d'ouvriers à travers le pays lancent un mouvement pour occuper diverses usines laissées à l'abandon et redémarrer les activités en formant des coopératives. Mais cette initiative est mise en péril par les manoeuvres des anciens propriétaires de ces usines, ainsi que par le retour de Menem qui brigue de nouveau le poste de président de l'Argentine lors de la campagne électorale de 2003."
