You probably know much of the clothes you wear were made in India, but do you know how they are made? Machines takes you deep inside the production of textiles, observing the connections between the machines and the workers who operate them. The distinctions seem to diminish as they all work in a never-ending repetitive rhythm. The film then brings us to the plight of the workers, who hardly get paid for long, heavy shifts, and from there to the employers, justifying why there is no way out of this unjust system.
A beautiful and mesmerizing, yet disturbing look at one of the consequences of globalization and free market politics.
