Visit a dark, decaying textile factory in Gujarat, India, where workers are slumped over reams of fabric. Travel to the bright streets of Senegal to protest a corrupt president alongside Senegalese hip-hop stars. Spend time at the concentration camp Dachau, watching the sightseers—and their reactions. Take these cinematic trips, plus 17 others, at MoMA’s annual celebration of international documentaries. The film festival opens on February 16 with Machines, about that Indian factory (or is it about the employees?), then spans the globe exploring themes of justice and advocacy before closing on the 26th with Tip of My Tongue, a film about New Yorkers.
