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.
