The editorial of January 2001 from â€œLe Monde diplomatiqueâ€ read: â€œThe new century starts in Porto Alegre. All those, who in one way or the other, question or criticise neoliberal globalization are going to gather in this city in southern Brazil, at the 1st World Social Forum. It is about trying, in a positive and constructive spirit, to propose a different kind of globalisation and to imply that a more humane, compassionate world is possible. This meeting takes place at the same time as the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland), which has taken place for several decades, for the new owners of the worldâ€.
Seven years have passed between then and the celebration in Kenya. The protagonists and participants from then and now analyse the process and tell us how to achieve this "other world that is possible". They remind to us that the social inequalities, human rights and the environment, among others, are the responsibility of all of us, and we, citizens of this planet, are the ones who finally have to take responsibility to change. A political and human documentary, full of reflections, struggles, proposals and dreams, some of them turned into reality.
