Dogwoof is excited to announce that Machines will be the opening night film of the Frames of Representation festival on 21 April in London. The festival returns to the ICA this year for its second iteration, with a focus on documentaries about the contemporary experience of 'working'.
Machines had its international premiere at the Sundance Film Festival where it won the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Excellence in Cinematography.
"An all-too-rare combination of artistic vision and social conscience.“

"This you-are-there look at a sweatshop in India drops the Dateline-style docmaking format and simply lets viewers step into the employees' tattered shoes.“
- Rolling Stone
Also at the festival, The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence director Joshua Oppenheimer is partaking in an unmissable masterclass. The masterclass takes place on 22 April and is hosted by film critic Eric Hynes, the event will focus on the representation and perception of the ‘other’ and the concept of otherness in documentary cinema, and discusses some of the ethical challenges of documentary filmmaking through examples from his work.
