Full Unemployment Cinema

+ Attending

The Public School Los Angeles presents Full Unemployment Cinema, including a screening of Joaquim Jordà's "Numax Presenta" and discussion. Free.

Full Unemployment Cinema is a London-based collective that has been organizing free film screenings about work and the struggles against it since November 2007. We have also organized screenings with collective projects elsewhere in Europe, such as Walls and Space in Copenhagen and Lothringer 13 in Munich. This will be Full Unemployment Cinema's first presentation in the United States. FUC will be represented by collective member Marina Vishmidt.

Joaquim Jordà's Numax Presenta (1980, 105 min) Financed with the contingency fund of the workers’ assembly at the Numax factory, this historical documentary is a bittersweet account of the partial successes and ultimate failure of the struggle for self-organisation of a group of workers in late 1970s Spain. Rather than speaking for the workers, late filmmaker Joaquim Jordà records the vivid discussions among them, allowing opposing views to unfold before the camera. The film traces a dramatic shift from the aspirations of self-management to defeat by self-exploitation, and the key role that women played in this movement.
