YOU CANNOT WIN WITHOUT FIGHTING

Germany | 2008

Synopsis
This is a personal trip to General Mosconi, a small town in theNorth of Argentina, rich with oil and gas. 1993 the state owned enterprise, YPF, that gave work, health care and education to the whole region, was privatised. The unemployment rate climbed to 70 percent, the whole infrastructure system collapsed.I went there to make a film-workshop on documentaries with members of the UTD, the union for unemployed workers in Mosconi. The press calls them piqueteros, they call themselves social workers. They have developed creative and unusual strategies of survival and ways of re-establishing the social network, that serve as a model for protest demonstrations throughout the country.They film themselves and I film them: their projects, their beliefs, their attitude towards life.
