(Puerto el Triunfo)
|Crew: || Jeffrey Gould|
In the 1970s, the 1500 organized workers of Puerto el Triunfo - mostly women - thanks to their struggles were amongst the more privileged laborers in the country. Then, state repression eliminated union leaders or drove them into exile. By 1990, the industry collapsed. The film provides a window into neoliberalism.
