The most important reason for this viewing party, however, is to cheer on fellow Yellow Springs residents Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar for their film, “American Factory,” that is nominated for Best Documentary Feature. The documentary, released on Netflix in August of 2019, details the creation of a Chinese-owned automotive glass factory, Fuyao Glass America, located in the building that once housed General Motors in Moraine.
Tickets to the event are free, but you must register at eventbrite.com to reserve your space at the viewing party.
