The Golden Thread
Outside Kolkata, several jute mills crank on, virtually unchanged since the industrial revolution. Powered by steam and sweat, work is a dance to the dictates of profit and century-old machines. The Golden Thread puts the analogue and digital, the early industrial and post-industrial, into experimental recombination. Having once discarded jute for polythene, the film questions industrial capitalism and its driving force – obsolescence.
