Shorts: Outdoors Anytime
TAKEOVER explores the twelve historic hours on July 14, 1970, in which fifty members of the Young Lords Party stormed the dilapidated Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx, drove out their administrative staff, barricaded entrances and windows, and made their cries for decent healthcare known to the world. Through archival footage, seamless reenactments, and modern-day interviews, we follow the Young Lords’ resistance against institutions curated by wealth and white supremacy, and their fight for the most basic of human rights: the right to accessible, quality healthcare.
35 years after the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, a group of young guys are trying to re-interpretate this place of the tragedy through art. The dream of our main character – Igor – is to create a rave in Chernobyl. That would help become the exclusion zone into an accessible platform, and not a heavy Soviet legacy. In the process of creating a rave, the system of black business, corruption and hypocrisy of the authorities is revealed. Igor’s path proves that change is inevitable: a dialogue between old paradigms and ideas of a new generation must happen.
