"Five Factories"
2006, Dario Azzelini (90 minutes)

Workers in some shuttered factories in Venezuela,
inspired by the cooperatively run factories in
Argentina, took over and reopened their workplaces.
This being Chavez's Bolivarian Republic, the takeover
had a different character, which is evident both from
the stories the workers tell and Azzelini's narrative
style. The titular five factories were reactivated
with the government's permission and involvement.
Still, the film provides a window onto this
interesting phenomenon.

"Labor & Community: Reflecting and Organizing in
Rogers Park" is jointly organized by the Roger Park
Industrial Workers of the World
( and the 49th St. Underground

Doing Time, Doing Vipassana
A DVD screening, discussion, and dinnerluck in
conjunction with the Network of
Cumulative Art's project "Domestic Struggle Part Two:
Eking Out Grassy Midwestern Social Fabrics and Prairie
Land Continuities."

"...the Israeli filmmakers traveled to both Tihar and
to the Baroda Jail in the India state of Gujarat, at
which Vipassana courses had also been conducted.
There they conducted and filmed extensive interviews
with jail officials,including Karen Bedei, and inmates
from many different countries who participated in the
courses. The result of these efforts was an extremely
powerful 52-minute documentary film entitled Doing
Time, Doing Vipassana."
