EMBROS: a free self-managed theatre

Embros: From printing office to theater, and from theater to squat. A documentary about self-organization, diversity and co-existence

Set against a world grappling with the rise of right-wing ideologies, this documentary aims to explore themes of resistance and unity. It gently suggests the importance of solidarity, offering a nuanced perspective on the enduring power of self-organized spaces and squats.

Decades before it became the Embros Theater in 1989, the building served as a printing office for the Embros newspaper. Today, the same building stands as a free self-organized theater, providing a free space for artistic expression and weekly open assemblies. Embros opens its doors to all, regardless of race, religion, or background.

More than a mere chronicle, the film invites the viewers to reflect on the subtle yet profound influence that collective strength has in shaping the societies we live in amid ideological challenges.
