MACHINES

Dir: Rahul Jain
India / Germany / 2016 / 75mins

"an overwhelming sensory immersion into a hidden, secretive environment." - The Hollywood Reporter

Moving through the corridors and bowels of an enormous and disorientating structure, the camera takes the viewer on a descent down to a dehumanised place of physical labour 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 thought-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 and poor.
