CINEMAS UTOPIA: Bordeaux


Dos o tres meses de preparación de un evento se esfuman en dos o tres horas de encuentro entre personas (activistas o no tanto), pero que compartimos la preocupación por el derecho a la vivienda en una sociedad que se auto define como democrática pero que deja en la exclusión un severo porcentaje de sus miembros.
