Portraits of a Solidarity Economy

16-pIva RadivojevicSep 11, 2011

SolidarityNYC has teamed up with BFC members Alex Mallis + Iva Radivojevis to create portraits of 7 economic innovators.

"Each film portrait examines the values and practices of a given business or organization through the story of an individual leader. We've included a reiki practitioner at a worker co-operative in Brooklyn; two co-founders of Brooklyn food co-operatives, including the most successful food co-op in America; a co-founder of a barter network for artists; a member of a 32-year-old successful intentional community on Staten Island; a community resident advocating for participatory budgeting in East Harlem; a board member at a Lower East Side community development credit union; and a veteran community gardens advocate in the Bronx. Each film is between 3-7 minutes long and is shot on location in people's homes, businesses, and organizations."
