Description

Food Coop

Dir. Tom Boothe | USA/France | 2016 | 97 mins | Australian Premiere

Food Coop takes us deep into the belly of the Park Slope Food Coop, one of America’s oldest cooperative food supermarket, with a healthy dose of insight and wit. Nestled deep in New York city, which, for many, exemplifies both the glory and the horrors of the capitalist spirit, you can find this highly prosperous institution, just as American as Wall Street, but whose objective is entirely non-profit. Working against everything that defines “The American Way of Life,” the basic principles of the Park Slope Food Coop are simple: each of its 16 000 members work 3 hours per month to earn the right to buy the best food in New York at incredibly low prices. Inspiring as much ire as enthusiasm, this Brooklyn coop founded in 1973 is regarded by many as the best implemented socialist experience in the United States. Through Food Coop, you will see this institution come to life and witness how the enthusiasm that animates the Park Slope Food Coop demonstrates a potential for change; how the coop's mode of participation viscerally teaches democracy to those who take part in its activities.
