Bâtiment 7

This short news feature story showcases the developments of Bâtiment 7, a collaborative community center in Pointe-Saint-Charles, Montreal. The project is the fruit of a 10 year struggle in the neighbourhood to create a community run space where people can participate in community life and access services that were lacking in the neighbourhood. Through the specific example of La Coulée, a cooperative metal workshop, the video shows the great potential of collective organizing.

Camera, script and editing was done in collaboration with Arielle de Pagter
