"...a story of every-day heroism, that also offers a model for productive change by repositioning the people as the power-brokers..." - THE VANCOUVER SUN
"Lewis and Klein have done something extraordinary...The workers in THE TAKE are so admirable, displaying a melancholy eloquence and a genuine revolutionary spirit." - THE NEW YORKER
THE TAKE opens in suburban Buenos Aires, where 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. But this simple act - The Take - has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head. A film which is almost guaranteed to make you alternately cry and laugh and most of all leave the screening with an overwhelming desire to change the world, The Take is a powerful manifesto to the power of ordinary people to come together and achieve extraordinary things.
