Made in Banglashesh (2019)

95 minutes, Rated 14A

Language: Bengali with English subtitles

Made in Bangladesh (2019) is a social drama exploring exploitative textile factory labour practices and the global trade apparatus supporting them. Shimu works in a clothing factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh. After a fire in the factory results in the death of a co-worker, Shimu is approached by a union advocate who provides her with a crash course in women workers' rights — and the tools to enforce them. Interweaving worker’s rights and feminist solidarity, Rubaiyat Hossain’s film tells the story of women who must fight and find a way.

Mayworks Festival and the Textile Museum of Canada screened this film in-person on May 14, 2023.

The Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts annually presents new works by a diverse range of artists, who are both workers and activists. Our programming offers bold, insightful, responses to pressing issues at the intersection of art, social justice and labour. We are actively engaged in a dialogue that challenges the logics of capitalism and seeks to further our struggles for better working & living conditions .

The Textile Museum of Canada aims to inspire understanding of the human experience through textiles. The Textile Museum of Canada is the only museum in Canada delivering programs and exhibitions dedicated solely to textile arts. The Museum ignites creativity, inspires wonder, and sparks conversation through the stories held within our global collection of textiles, and active engagement with contemporary art practices.
