What’s on TV Wednesday: ‘American Factory’ and ‘School Girls’


AMERICAN FACTORY Stream on Netflix. The first launch from Barack and Michelle Obama’s new manufacturing firm, Higher Ground Productions, seems at what occurs when an automotive glass manufacturing unit owned by a Chinese billionaire opens in what was as soon as a General Motors plant close to Dayton, Ohio. Directed by Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert, the documentary focuses on American and Chinese employees on the plant, laying out the challenges and frustrations they face as their preliminary optimism is challenged. “With detail and sweep, interviews and you-are-there visuals, the filmmakers quickly establish a clear, strong narrative line as the new enterprise — Fuyao Glass America — gets off the ground,” Manohla Dargis wrote in her evaluate for The New York Times. “The optimism of the workers is palpable; the access the filmmakers secured remarkable. Bognar and Reichert spent a number of years making ‘American Factory,’ a commitment that’s evident in its layered storytelling and the trust they earned.”
