May Day under Covid-19 Lockdown

On 1 May 2020, the New Delhi based independent bookstore, May Day Bookstore, held an online May Day festival, featuring 11 performers/speakers from three continents. The whole show, lasting over 12 hours, was continuously live-streamed using exclusively non-corporate platforms, developed by the Free Software Movement.

This is a film about how it all came together.
