A DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT A CHANGE / SHORTCUTS TO THE INTEGRAL REVOLUTION
In a system in decadence, immersed in crisis, there are people who, confronted with difficulties, trace imaginary lines and new paths. More organic ways that try to blur the lineal, static maps of the dominant system.
We are making a documentary film about the processes of change in people who have decided to disconnect themselves from the capitalist system and choose other forms of relation, of living, consuming and of using their time.
This film slips into the lives of people who have dared to defy the structures of this system in order to trace new routes, more coherent with the reality that we are living.
We believe that this crisis goes far beyond the economy, that, in reality, it is an opportunity of rethinking the way we do things. We know that there are people who are struggling daily to create the world in which they wish to live.
And rather than worry we want to manage and motivate ourselves to collectively find back doors, paths still to be discovered, or any shortcut that can bring us to another reality.
We want to participate in the creation of new references in our language, the audiovisual, and we insist on the importance of portraying these embrionary processes full of promise for the future.
It will be a project licensed under Creative Commons so that it can be freely distributed and can inspire other transformative initiatives.
THE COOPERATIVA INTEGRAL CATALANA
The Integral Catalan Cooperative is the framework within which we tell our story. The cooperative is a decentralised network of projects which seeks to articulate a social fabric which covers all the basic necessities of life - lodging, work, food, health, education, energy - and which strives to generate new languages and ways of relating together. An integral revolution which empowers individuals and is constantly under way where changes are being made. The Catalan Integral Cooperative (CIC) is a 2 year old project that is already giving tangible results in Catalunya while it's reproducible model is inspiring numerous projects in Spain and worldwide.
