I've just watched "American Factory" - a 2019 American documentary film directed by Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert, about Chinese company Fuyao's factory in Moraine.
It contains lots of scenes and dialogue which put very prominent and rich man and his company in bad position, there are even illegal statements of rich man's employee caugh on camera. I'm referring to this:
It’s illegal under U.S. law to threaten or fire employees for trying to form a union.
“We didn’t know labor law, but a lot of that stuff is actually illegal,” Reichert says.
to name a few.
I'd expect that this kind of movie is shot with hidden camera or some other trick. But it seems that it was shot with full acceptance of rich man and his company.
How is that even possible? Isn't this film like some kind of mockumentary? Having those kind of bad things taped would be the last thing that I'd want as a rich man.
(in the movie there is only 1 short scene - with black screen because only voice was secredly recorded - which seems to be recorded without rich man's approval)
