“With Made in Bangladesh, Rubaiyat Hossain has crafted an urgent cry for workers’ rights, and a vision of feminist solidarity in the face of overwhelming opposition.” – Dana Reinos, Cinema Scope
In this compelling and inspiring drama from writer/director Rubaiyat Hossain, a young factory worker in Bangladesh fights against the odds to make a better life for herself and her co-workers. Shimu, 23, works in a clothing factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh, toiling away making inexpensive garments for global export. Faced with difficult and exploitive conditions at work, she finally decides to try and make things better by starting a union with her co-workers. Despite threats from the management, the disapproval of her husband, and the fears of her colleagues, Shimu is determined to go on, not only for herself, but for her friends, as well. Together the women must fight and find a way. (Dir. by Rubaiyat Hossain, 2019, Bangladesh, in Bengali with English subtitles, 95 mins., Not Rated)
