SHIFT CHANGE World Premiere Screening at the Grand Lake Theater
Grand Lake Theater Oakland, CA

Join us for the world premiere of the highly-anticipated new documentary film, SHIFT CHANGE, which examines worker owned and managed businesses in the U.S. and Mondragon, Spain.
With the long decline in well paid jobs, and today's economic crisis, millions have been thrown out of work, and many are losing their homes. Some are ready to employ a different business model; to help re-invent our failing economy in order to restore long-term community stability and a more egalitarian way of life. Businesses that are owned and managed by their workers tend to be more profitable, innovative and committed to the communities where they are based.
SHIFT CHANGE visits the more than 50 year old network of cooperative businesses in Mondragon, Spain, and thriving examples of such businesses in the U.S. The film shares on-the-ground experience, lessons, and observations from the worker-owners on the front line of the new economy.
The world premiere of SHIFT CHANGE is presented by One PacificCoast Bank. The event is co-sponsored by: Network of Bay Area Worker Coops (NoBAWC), US Federation of Worker Coops, Sustainable Business Alliance / Oakland Grown, Cooperative Center Federal Credit Union, Arizmendi Lakeshore, Shoe Shine Wines, Toolbox for Education, and Inkworks Press. Our media partners are East Bay Express and Shareable.
Special guests at the event will include: SHIFT CHANGE producers, worker-owners from Bay Area coops Arizmendi and WAGES, Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin, Democracy Collaborative Executive Director Ted Howard, and many more!
