Resume

The Hotel Bauen was build in Buenos Aires in 1978, under the military dictatorship. In December 2001, while the country sinks in a deep economic crisis, it goes bankrupt; its employees are being made redundant. Left in disarray, about thirty ex-employees invest the place in March 2003; they become the Bauen workers cooperative. They rehabilitate the infrastructures and open for customers in march 2004. Since then, they’ve been working in a profit share self-management system; sharing tasks and salaries, voting at each assembly for every decision concerning them. Right to work against owner’s right…which legitimacy will overtake?

From this unique and symbolic place, the film offers to dive in the heart of self-management and to testify of today’s Argentina.
