“An atmospheric portrait of four women who leave the factory where they work to go to the beach.
“Women Workers Leaving the Factory” presents a cinema composed of essences and atmosphere. Its story glides along in silence, surreptitiously becoming an excuse for playing with the shades of sensations. As a totally visual film, the avatars of narration matter for little here. Indeed, the work takes up the aesthetic challenge of probing the viewer, summoning the viewer to abandon all passivity, to search inside and find the ideal place to let everything go; to relax and be transported by the delicacy of the sights and sounds.” —karagarga.net
