Figaro is a little town in Catalonia, governed by an assembly of neighbors that does not belong to any political party. For ten years they have been in the Town Hall practicing a participatory democracy with a genuine desire to involve the rest of the people. One of its pillars is the voting of a participatory budgeting where everyone can decide how to spend the people’s money. This documentary with the working title The Figaro presents this experience.
We are a team of three filmmakers who have been filming in Figaro for two years. Currently we are about to begin the post-production phase and we need financial support to be able to do it. This is why we are doing a crowdfunding campaign on Verkami.com
