American Factory

November 5 @ 12:00 am

American Factory

Hopes for an industrial revival spring anew in the economically depressed Rust Belt town of Moraine, a suburb of Dayton, Ohio, where in 2015 the Chinese company Fuyao took over a defunct General Motors plant to begin manufacturing car glass. The news holds promise for thousands of former autoworkers, eager for employment. But there’s trouble ahead, as Chinese corporate philosophy is often at odds with American expectations.

Master documentarians Reichert and Bognar, who have made labor one of their key subjects over the decades, explore a culture clash in the heartland, with flashes of humor, compassionate insight and uncommon access.
