A Chinese Billionaire Buys A Defunct GM Plant Then Hires Back its Workers: Now What?

A Chinese Billionaire Buys A Defunct GM Plant Then Hires Back its Workers: Now What?

American Factory

Release Date: 2019 via Netflix

Trailer: N/A

This Sundance runaway hit enticed audiences with the honest, fly-on-the-wall portrayal of what happened when a recently closed GM plant in Dayton, Ohio was bought out by a Chinese billionaire, only for him to transform it into a Chinese glass company while hiring back all the previous workers who were laid-off. Although the billionaire created jobs for the community, the working environment resulted in a culture clash set in the heart of Trump’s America. This documentary focuses on working-class America confronting, head-on, an evolving world—one which may not cater to their every needs. Directed by Academy Award nominees Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert, the team behindThe Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant, the follow-up documentary provides an unbiased look at the subjects involved, and beckons the viewer to ponder afterwards. This essential film was acquired by Netflix and will premiere this spring.
