Oscar nomination for Glass Movie

A film about a glass factory in the mid-west of America has been nominated for an Oscar.

American Factory charts the story of Chinese glassmaker Fuyao Glass’s acquisition of a plant near Dayton, Ohio in 2015 and the subsequent culture clash between American and Chinese values.

The film was nominated for an Oscar earlier this week in the Best Documentary category.

The Chairman of Fuyao Glass Industry Group is Cho Tak Wong, who was named the 2016 Phoenix Committee Glass Person of the Year award.

American Factory is available on Netflix and is the first film distributed by Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company.
