When a Chinese billionaire opens a factory in a shuttered General Motors plant in Ohio, a culture clash unfolds that sheds light on the future of American labor and Chinese economic dominance. Following the screening, stay for a Q&A with filmmakers and invited guests.
Producer Jeff Reichert, Williams College Professor of Economics Sarah LaLumia, and Director of MASS MoCA Joseph Thompson will join us for a conversation after American Factory.
The 2020 election: Are we on the brink of the apocalypse, or a new era of enlightenment — or both? American Factory is the first installment of “What’s at Stake”, MASS MoCA’s series of documentary films about defining issues — from voting rights to immigration to labor to the end of the natural world as we know it.
