Un film communiste et punk à pistes multiples.

One night, a group of workers realizes that their administration has organized the stealing of machines from their factory. They soon understand that this is the first signal of a massive layoff.

Most of them refuse to cooperate during the individual negotiations and they start to occupy their workplace. So when the administration vanishes to their great surprise, they’re left with a half-empty factory…

As the world around them collapses, new desires start to emerge.

Le deuxième palier, c’est une ligne du récit qui zigzague pour suivre plus particulièrement la vie de Zé, un des plus jeunes du groupe, hors de l’usine : sa copine brésilienne et le fils de celle-ci, son groupe punk et ses nuits blanches, son père qui fantasme une nouvelle révolution («mais pas avec des œillets !»).

Only late in the day do we learn that Zé sings in an agit-prop punk band


A partir de uma ideia de Jorge Silva Melo, A FÁBRICA é uma longa metragem de ficção sobre os dias que se vivem, entre empresas que fecham e outras que se tentam salvar, pela força e vontade dos seus trabalhadores. Passado na zona industrial de Alverca, o filme trabalha a relação entre um trabalhador e um realizador que procura fazer um filme a partir de uma fábrica em processo de falência.

Judith Herzberg wrote the text for this pronounced musical theater performance. In the Nothing Factory, she approaches the consumer society and unemployment in an airy manner. What exactly is a Nothing Factory? Perhaps the cafe with chat talk,, which ultimately produced nothing.
