FACTORY
Director KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI
Cinematography STANISLAW NIEDBALSKI, JACEK TWOREK

A working day in the Ursus tractor factory. Shots of workers are contrasted with those of a management board meeting. The factory cannot meet its production quota because there is a shortage of equipment, parts, and so on. Papers are sent out, licenses are applied for, numerous meetings held, but there seems to be no way out of the vicious circle of misunderstandings and bureaucracy - the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. As one of the board members says: “the bureaucracy in this country hampers any solution.” Yet the workers still have to meet their quota. A bitter image of the functioning of an industrial enterprise within a socialist economy.
