Workers Co-operative Puporé
Short documentary produced in conjunction with Melbourne based Fair Trade company Etiko, tells the story of factory workers in the suburb of Gregorio De Laferrere in the outskirts of Buenos Aires who have suffered as a direct result of the Argentinean financial collapse of 2001. We visited their small factory to see how they produce their products, and to discuss how the Fair Trade movement has helped workers re-established themselves into co-operatives in order to provide for their families and communities.
Filmed in the outer suburbs of Buenos Aires, Argentina, this short documentary film gives an insight into how communities are rebuilding themselves after the financial crash of 2001 through the formation of small scale workers co-operatives.
