FOOD COOP takes us deep into the belly of the Park Slope Food Coop, one of America’s oldest cooperative food supermarket, with a healthy dose of insight and wit. Working against everything that defines “The American Way of Life,” the basic principles of the coop are simple: each of its 16 000 members work 2 hours 45 per month to earn the right to buy the best food in New York at incredibly low prices. Inspiring as much hatred as enthusiasm, this neighbourhood institution founded in 1973 is probably the best implemented socialist experience in the United States. To learn more, visit the official website of the film, read an interview with the director (in French) and watch the film's trailer.


Tom Boothe is an American director based in Paris since 2002. He is also the cofounder of Coopérative La Louve, a coop food market scheduled to open in 2017 in Paris.
