Nothing Factory An evocative activist film that blows away the boundaries between reality, fiction, theater, and a sociological discourse leading to an unsettling and provocative cinematic experience.

A contemporary political film whose originality was noted by the FIPRESCI jury at the last Cannes Festival. An evocative activist film that blows away the boundaries between reality, fiction, theater, and a sociological discourse leading to an unsettling and provocative cinematic experience, wrote the jury. The eponymous factory is located in Lisbon, where it used to make elevators, at least until the owners started quietly exporting their equipment to move production somewhere cheaper. A group of workers not only go on strike, but they want to create a co-operative on the ruins of the plant to take over production itself.
