Synopsis

“Tobacco Embers” documents, re-enacts, and takes forward one of the largest movements of unorganized labor of its time and context, which sparked unionizing processes across India throughout the 1980s. In the spirit of mobilizing for the leftist labor and the women’s movements the Yugantar collective spent four months with female tobacco factory workers in Nipani, Karnataka in India, listening to their accounts of exploitative working conditions, discussing strategies for unionizing and steps to broaden solidarities for strike actions, and filming previously unseen circumstances inside the factories. The team followed the workers’ leads as to what, where, and how their actions should be recorded, and developed a loose script through the workers’ narratives.

Sinopsis

“Žar cigareta” dokumentira, oživljava i prati jedan od najvećih pokreta neorganiziranog rada svog vremena i konteksta, što će kasnije katalizirati sindikalnim udruženjima širom Indije osamdesetih godina. U duhu mobilizacije za ljevičarske laburastičke partije i ženske pokrete, Yugantar kolektiv proveo je četiri mjeseca slušajući ispovijedi o izrabljivačkim radnim uslovima, diskutujući o strategijama za sindikalne aktivnosti i koracima ka međusobnoj solidarnosti u cilju organizacije štrajka, istovremeno snimajući do tada neviđene uslove unutar fabrika. Tim je slijedio radničke tragove u kontekstu načina, mjesta i obrade snimanja njihovih aktivnosti, i na toj osnovi skrojio labav scenarij radničkih narativa.
