Osterfestival Tirol 2022 - Machines

In his debut, director Rahul Jain shows the grueling everyday life in one of the countless textile factories of Gujarat (India). Adults and children work tirelessly under inhumane conditions for a pittance in 12-hour shifts. The rhythm of work is dictated by the machines that never stand still. With the help of beautiful, unforgettable images, the camera takes the viewer on a journey to this place of dehumanization where man and machine seem to merge into a single being. Jain leaves them almost entirely uncommented upon, with few selected interviews supplementing the documentary
A haunting story of inequality and oppression, people and machines.
