"We can´t understand the current world if we don´t understand the production unit, because this is the basis" 
Glauci Arbix, Sociologist 

“Factory Culture” is a documentary video made for Futura Chanel´s Sala de Notícias program, wich presents the relation between of Cubatão residents with the history of factories in the region.

Based on the habits of the workers, theirs homes, families, machines and work enviroment, the program tell touching histories.  Against the backdrop a city whose economic activity was - and still is - predominantly industrial, one wonders how the workers were able to modify the local industry and, in the same way, how the city and industry alternated the lifestyle of the residents.
