FACTORY TO THE WORKERS
Croatia 2021 – Director: Srđan Kovačević – Original language: Croatian – Subtitles: English
“And now, we are reinventing the wheel.” Despite the successful takeover, the heyday of the collectively-run factory in the north of Croatia is already almost a distant memory. The film follows workers at a breaking point, torn between loyalty, nostalgia and disenchantment under the capitalist system. Respectful, intense and intimate. Anna Magdalena Hofer
