Machines

Directed by Rahul Jain
Germany, India, Finland | 75 min. | Hindi, English (English subtitled)

In the textile factories of the Indian metropolis Gujarat, machines rumble unhindered while workers slave away in degrading conditions to earn the minimum to survive. For director Rahul Jain – himself a scion of a rich family of Indian textile industrialists – it was necessary to capture the reality of hard labour in long, bewitching shots. That makes it more difficult to look away – something we are often guilty of.
