This week on The Deep Cut, John Rocha welcomes Academy Award nominated and Emmy Award winning directors Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert to discuss their latest documentary 'American Factory'. A Netflix Original Documentary presented by Higher Ground Productions and Participant Media. The acclaimed film takes a deep dive into a post-industrial Ohio, where a Chinese billionaire opens a new factory in the husk of an abandoned General Motors plant and hires two thousand blue-collar Americans still recovering from the effects of the 2008 recession. Steven and Julia discuss the story behind making this documentary, how they found themselves on the project, and the nearly unlimited access they had to both the American workers and executives and the Chinese workers and executives. They also discuss what their thoughts are on the state of the American factory worker and the state of the working class in general after shooting this documentary.For more on the movie click here: https://www.participantmedia.com/film/american-factoryFollow Rocha: https://twitter.com/TheRochaSays
