The Factory of the World

Year2014 Duration8 min. DirectorMinna Rainio, Mark Roberts

The relocation of a factory in Finland to China is the setting for this pair of artists to react with a short film that hides intelligence and a profound denunciation in its apparent simplicity. We see the spaces that were left abandoned in Europe. We hear the voices from China that tell us of the reasons for the transfer. This dissociation includes everything: cheap labour, tougher working conditions and a stage that is left empty and establishes a bridge between two worlds through which the human being passes with his ambition, progress and other follies.
