When a Marseilles-based tea processing plant was threatened with closure in 2010, workers occupied the factory and won an epic struggle against the transnational food giant Unilever. Their 1,336-day political action became a symbol for labor activists in France and around the world. Encounter the day-to-day reality of a cooperative business trying to stay afloat in a corporate marketplace.

Join us for a Q&A with filmmaker Laura Coppens after the screening!
