In 2010, Unilever announced the closing of the profitable tea factory Fralib in the South of France. After 1336 days of protest, workers celebrated their victory against the multinational corporation and became the owners of the factory. Now, with the takeover of the company and the production under the workers’ control, a new struggle has begun. Is this alternative project capable of surviving in an oversaturated and highly competitive market?
A discussion with Quentin Orain (FoodHub München) will follow the screening.
The original version of the film will be shown with English subtitles. The discussion will be held in German.
Free and open to the public.
