(en) Anarchist Group Amsterdam AGA: Pre-presentation for Precaristas documentary (nl)

Date Tue, 19 Jan 2021 10:32:10 +0200


After some weeks of work, we are happy to announce the availability of the documentary "Precaristas" with (English subtitles). This documentary from 2018 and recorded by "Inercia Docs" explores the housing struggle in the Canary Islands. Our expectations is to arrange an info night for this documentary at the moment is possible again. Such thing does not seem possible at this moment due to the current corona situation. So, for the time being, we are releasing this material in the hope of providing some meaningful counter-cultural material to watch and think about while this lock-down keeps us trapped at home. ---- The synopsis of the documentary: ---- "A documentary about the struggle of the Anarchist Federation and the Tenant Union of Gran Canaria. One of the pioneering experiences of the state. The first of the many self-organized unions that are born from below, in neighborhoods and towns throughout the state, from the struggle for access to housing, stopping evictions, with massive squats, relocation of families or on farms acquired through cessions semi-informal with property (hence the term precarious). But always defended with the neighborhood union action. Anarchist housing experiments that have responded to the limited role of island administrations, trying to unite and expand a popular movement through the coverage of basic needs. With a hybrid audiovisual language, between the journalistic, documentary and experimental genres, the central story is constructed through an intimate approach to families and is complemented by voices from different political, business, academic and legal actors on the island. In the narrative there is also room for an incursion into the tourist dimension of Gran Canaria (34% of GDP), exploring the impact and relationship that this economic monoculture has on housing. A self-managed documentary that has had the collaboration of communication collectives such as La Directa or Bauma and with a soundtrack by artists such as Silvia Tomas Trio, the rap group Resiliencia and the DJs Mash Masters"
