Fuyao to honor Reichert, Bognar, ‘American Factory’ Oscar winners

Leaders of Fuyao Glass America plan to honor Yellow Springs-based filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar next week.

Reichert and Bognar, with their team, were the creative force behind the acclaimed Netflix documentary “American Factory,” a film exploring up-close the creation of Fuyao’s automotive glass production facility in the shell of a former General Motors plant.

The documentary recently won an Academy Award for "best feature length" documentary.


Jeff Liu, Fuyao Glass America’s chief executive, said company leaders, as well as guests from JobsOhio, the Dayton Development Coalition, the city of Moraine and others will be on hand to honor the filmmakers at Taste of the World, Fuyao’s plant restaurant Wednesday evening.
