“I saw this unfolding and was blown away by what was happening…We quickly assembled a team of filmmakers and a SWAT team on the ground and started shooting even before we had investors. We were able to capture in real time all the various elements of the story.”

We the People: The Market Basket Effect traces the events that led 25,000 employees and 2 million customers across New England to stand behind embattled CEO Arthur T. Demoulas and wrest control of a multibillion dollar grocery empire from an activist board of directors led by Artie T.’s cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas.

A vivid and thorough portrayal of the most memorable labor protest in recent American history, We the People investigates a question at the heart of ongoing economic debate: can regular people really band together to alter the balance of power in major corporations, or is the case of Market Basket a fairytale victory?

Narrator Michael Chiklis - who was born and raised in Lowell, the same Massachusetts town where the Demoulas grocery empire was established - weaves through on-the-ground footage and thoughtful expert analysis to find out.
