Losers and Winners

Perdenti e vincitori
by Michael Loeken, Ulrike Franke Documentary Germania/Germany 2006 96'

In the Ruhr Valley, once the heart of Germany's steel industry, the mills are being relocated. The authors recount the closure of the Kaiserstuhl steel mill and its dismantling by 400 Chinese workers as they "package" it for shipment to China where it will be reassembled and put back to work. Supervising the operation are 30 of the mill's 800 former employees. The film documents the confrontation between two different work cultures: the self-assumed superiority of the Germans, left to an uncertain future, and the total abnegation and hopes of the Chinese workers.<%YOUTUBE=_K01xSqpKIY%>
