American Factory
2019 Documentary
1h 55min
In post-industrial Ohio, a Chinese billionaire opens a new auto-glass factory in Dayton, Ohio, hires thousands of locals to work there, then — frustrated by the perceived slowness of the American employees — begins replacing them with machines. A winner at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the film features intense conflict and also a full-blown musical number, staged by the corporation, limning the virtues of efficiency.
 
From The New York Times:
