A DECENT FACTORY

Thomas Balmès
FIN, FRA 2004
79min
V'05

There are always cultural and moral issues to be dealt with, when Western companies move their production to countries, where costs are low and working conditions are poor. In A Decent Factory, we accompany two women, a Finnish Nokia employee and a British consultant, on their visit to a factory in China. They «clash between» Chinese culture and the male European manager, who brags about his Chinese employees who have «long maintenance». Yet things are not always what they seem.
