Watched "American Factory" last night and found it to be a fascinating collide of American and Chinese cultures (and freedoms): https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/american_factory

It won Best Documentary Feature at the 2020 Academy Awards.

Pretty amazing how much access the film crews had to everything too (both on the American and Chinese sides). I have no idea how they managed it, given that some of the content they discussed was probably illegal! (Like firing workers that were pushing to unionize).

It's distributed by Netflix and is the first film produced by Barack and Michelle Obama's production company, Higher Ground Productions.

Anyone else watch it?

I'll check it out, but the Obama's make me sick to my stomach.

WTF do they or their cronies know about "American workers" except how to screw them
