Machines

Macchine
by Rahul Jain Documentary India, Germany, Finland 2016 75'

Moving through the labyrinth of an enormous and disorientating structure, director Rahul Jain takes us on a descent down to a place of dehumanizing physical labor: a gigantic textile factory located in Sachin, a city in the Surat Metropolitan Region in the Indian state of Gujarat. Since the 1960s the area has undergone unprecedented, unregulated industrialisation. Through carefully selected interviews, the film provides an intimate portrayal of the life of thousands workers dictated by the rhythm of the machines, and of the hardships they face. A story of inequality and oppression and division between rich and poor.After the screening, meeting with Giorgio Airaudo e Vittorio Cogliati Dezza.
