Movie Info

Moving through the corridors and bowels of an enormous and disorientating structure, the camera takes the viewer on a descent down to a dehumanized place of physical labor and intense hardship. This gigantic textile factory in Gujarat, India might just as well be the decorum for a 21st century Dante's Inferno. In his mind-provoking yet intimate portrayal, director Rahul Jain observes the life of the workers, the suffering and the environment they can hardly escape from. With strong visual language, memorable images and carefully selected interviews of the workers themselves, Jain tells a story of inequality, oppression and the huge divide between rich, poor and the perspectives of both.

    In Cinema, a picture is really worth a thousand words, and this is a visually arresting and piercing look into the daily work of laborers at a gigantic textile factory in India, exposing in a mostly silent way the ugly exploitation and ungrateful conditions to which they are submitted.
