"A City Of Factories"
11 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a true depiction of the Maquiladroa women Mexican workers who show us their trials and tribulations in trying to get through daily life as a factory worker. This is a film that is very interestingly taped with a mixture of film still shots, computer images, words, shots from the point of view of the cameraman and point of view of the women. They directors gave cameras to the women to bring home and shoot some of their own footage which helps us to really immerse ourselves in their lives. Overall a very proper and artistic representation. These womens strength and determination really shows through such a sad tough reality.
