Channeling real-life stories that Bangladeshi filmmaker Rubaiyat Hossain encountered as a women's rights activist, this empowering, layered drama shines a light on an oppressive industry, and demands our attention.
“One hundred years ago in Bangladesh, women had to live in seclusion. Today, they are working, they are making a living for themselves and their families, and they are fighting within the factory and at home for their rights.”
- Rubaiyat Hossain, director, Made in Bangladesh

“Made in Bangladesh is a poignant story about the struggles of women who work in garment factories, trying to eke out a living while simultaneously fighting for dignity at work and home. It’s a film that every consumer should watch and begin to scrutinize the brands they buy.”
