A DECENT FACTORY is a documentary film about globalisation using Nokia as the subject. In our global economy Western companies are more and more moving their production to countries where costs are lower. This is causing cultural and moral dilemmas, because in these countries the working conditions, workers’ rights and environmental issues are often in conflict with the practices of Western countries. At the same time international investment funds are looking much closer at the ethical side of businesses.
The film constitutes a subtle, classic documentary drama, between two European women and a European male manager, who have all been thrown into the middle of a foreign culture due to the global economy.
