“American Factory” documents the true tale of the purchase and reopening of a long-shuttered factory in Dayton, Ohio. It provides a glimpse into the economic overhaul happening in towns and cities across the country and the globe. The film is a powerful testament to the impact people, technology and communication have on our workplaces and our lives.
