WUD Film presents a free screening of American Factory (2020).

This film is a part of WUD Film's annual Social Cinema series in collaboration with the Havens Center for Social Justice at UW-Madison.

USA | 110 minutes | Streaming | Dir. Steven Bognar, Julia Reichert

In post-industrial Ohio, a Chinese billionaire opens a factory in an abandoned General Motors plant, hiring two thousand Americans. Early days of hope and optimism give way to setbacks as high-tech China clashes with working-class America.

"The movie is eye-opening - a windshield on the new world," - David Edelstein, New York Magazine
