SHIFT CHANGE shows how worker ownership lifted an entire region of Spain out of poverty, while North American cooperative businesses empower immigrant cleaners, install inner-city solar power, and manufacture robots. Preceded by a short teaser for RADICAL ROOTS, a new local documentary about the Twin Cities food co-ops and their revolutionary, conflicted past. $8 in advance on the Trylon Theater's website. Only 50 seats in the place, so you may wish to reserve in advance.
