Documentary: Pieces of Madrid

This short documentary explores ongoing resistance and  self-organization in the midst of the economic and social crisis in  Madrid, Spain.

As social conditions continue to deteriorate across the country, people  have been turning to the streets and to each other to find for solutions to the crisis. This film tells a story of the massive mobilization that saw millions of people converge on Madrid on March 22nd 2014, the story of the proliferation of social centers, community gardens,  self-organized food banks, and the story of large-scale housing  occupations by and for families that have been evicted. The film pieces  together many of the creative ways that people have been coping with  crisis and asks what the future may hold for Spain.

Filmed and edited in March/April 2014, it is part of the Global Uprisings documentary series.
