Next stop: Asia. The documentary Together follows its travel around the world! The film about the resilience of cooperatives in Industries and Services in Europe is now available in Japanese and Korean. It has already been screened in Japan in front of enthusiastic cooperators and some scenes have been also transmitted through the National TV Channel NHK.
The film, produced by CECOP – CICOPA Europe, illustrate how cooperatives show a better resilience to the crisis and its consequences through testimonies of staff of four European cooperative stories located in France, Poland, Italy and Spain. The examples filmed include a mineral water factory in Poland founded more than 60 years ago (Muszynianka), a French company in crisis acquired by its workers and transformed into a worker cooperative (Fonderie de l’Aisne), a consortium of social cooperatives in Milan providing labour inclusion to disadvantaged people and social services to thousands of citizens (Consorzio SIS) and an industrial cooperative group which is one of Spain’s main business groups (MONDRAGON Corporation).
Together is also available in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Greek and Bulgarian and before the end of this year, the film will be also available in Finnish, Portuguese and Czech.
