MADE IN BANGLADESH

A group of workers from a clothing factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh, join forces to form a union after one of them was killed in a fire. Young Shimu becomes the leader of the protest by getting signatures, stealthily capturing images of her workplace, and pressuring bureaucrats not to get stuck on paperwork. The manager and the boss, who do not hesitate to withhold the women’s wages or to force them to sleep in the suffocating factory, fight in every way the attempts to organize the union. On their side is also Shimu's patriarchal husband, even if he’s unemployed.

 

A partnership in solidarity with  the FIFDH Genève
