Where to watch Oscar-winning ‘American Factory’ in Dayton this weekend

At the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday, Yellow Springs residents Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar brought home an Oscar for their work on “American Factory,” a documentary about the creation of the Chinese-owned Fuyao Glass America factory housed in the same building as the old General Motors assembly plant in Moraine.
