Like all of the truly great docs of the past 50 years, AMERICAN FACTORY‘s ability to contain multitudes within a single captured moment speaks volumes.
AMERICAN FACTORY provides a snapshot of the struggle between labor and management that is both timeless and distinctly of its time. Even more surprisingly, it does so in a manner that is often engaging and entertaining, considering the subject matter.
The veteran filmmakers Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert, who are a couple and live outside Dayton, documented the G.M.plant when it closed . The feature-length story they tell here is complex, stirring, timely and beautifully shaped, spanning continents as it surveys the past, present, and possible future of American labor. Bognar and Reichert spent a number of years making AMERICAN FACTORY, a commitment that’s evident in its layered storytelling and the trust they earned.
