American Factory was filmed in a Chinese-run, former General Motors assembly plant near Dayton, Ohio. The billionaire owner hired 2,000 working-class Americans to work in his high-tech facility. It depicts the Chinese factory workers side-by-side with ex-American autoworkers at the Fuyao Glass manufacturing plant.
The film was directed by Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert and premiered in 2019. The result is this award winning documentary film about Americans at work in the 21st century. It was featured at Sundance and won the Best Documentary Feature at the 2020 Academy Awards. It also won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary the same year.
Topic: Sensible Cinema – AMERICAN FACTORY
