About the films:

  • A street view
    In this slice-of-life drama, we spend one evening riding the streets of Madrid with a young female courier. During this time, we learn about her background, the job situation in the city for young university graduates, and the difficulties she faces navigating life and work.

  • La forza del futuro (The strength of the future)
    This film is an homage to trade unionists in Italy and the importance of passing trade unionist values and skills from one generation to the next. Young workers are the next workers and the strength of the union's future.

  • When We Fight
    In America's second largest school district, 98% of teachers vote to strike. The Los Angeles teachers' strike unfolds in real time, highlighting the stories and leadership of some of the women leading it.
