Workers Leaving the Factory

Workers Leaving the Factory, a co-presentation by the Art Gallery of Windsor and the Media City International Festival of Experimental Film and Video Art, brings together works by three contemporary artists and filmmakers (Nancy Davenport, Harun Farocki, and Sharon Lockhart) who take as their common point of departure Louis Lumiere 1895 La Sortie des usines Lumière. The first film ever screened publicly, its 47 seconds of footage depict (as the title indicates) a group of workers exiting Lumière’s family-owned factory on the outskirts of Lyon.
