FILM: A SILENT TRANSFORMATION.  THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF THE COOPERATIVE ENTERPRISE MODEL

This is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative enterprise model.  The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective well being in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion  and cultural discrimination.  As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic  amenities for decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever. However,  over the years the co-op sector has become insular and poorly understood.  A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of  different communities across the Province of Ontario. By addressing their needs  collectively they are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation.   In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity,  and a new popular movement to transform society!   Will it grow and flourish?
