Taking Over

Torre Bela (Thomas Harlan, 1975) - Engrossing, engaged documentary of political protests, deliberations, and actions among a group of disenfranchised workers and farmers who take over a landowner's farm in Portugal. A left-wing European cinema classic, though to be fair, describing it as such seems a disservice to the spirit of the endeavor.
