September 21, 2010 - Sylvia Bierschenk
NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and Friends of the Visual Arts will present a one-night screening of "The Take," a documentary about Argentinean workers, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House, 329 E. Main St. in downtown Nacogdoches.
In the 87-minute film, director Avi Lewis and writer Naomi Klein champion a radical economic movement in which unemployed factory workers illegally occupy the closed factories in an effort to restart production on their own and reclaim their jobs.
"The Take," which won the Documentary Award at the 2004 American Film Institute Festival, is sponsored in part by SFA's Latin American Studies interdisciplinary program.
Admission is free. For more information, please call (936) 468-1131.
