Dir Rahul Jain.

Dir. Rahul Jain. 2017, 71 mins. Digital projection. In Hindi and English with English subtitles. Marrying stunning visuals with social advocacy, Rahul Jain’s debut documentary takes audiences into the labyrinthine passages of an enormous textile factory in Gujarat, India. Jain’s camera wanders freely between pulsating machines and bubbling vats of dye to create a moving portrait of the human laborers who toil away there for twelve hours a day creating fabric that will be used to create glamorous clothing. This political message is delivered amidst the unsettling beauty of the factory’s mechanical underworld and the colorful, billowing fabrics it produces.
