Moving through the corridors and bowels of an enormous and disorientating structure, the camera takes the viewer on a descent down to a dehumanised place of physical labour and intense hardship. This gigantic textile factory in Gujarat, India becomes a 21st century equivalent of Dante’s Inferno. Director Rahul Jain observes the life of the workers, the suffering and the environment they can hardly escape from with thoughtful intimacy. With strong visual language, memorable images and carefully selected interviews of the workers themselves, Jain tells a story of inequality, oppression and the huge divide between rich, poor, and the perspectives of both.
