In the Field with Mark Kelley

While he was shooting 'Made in Bangladesh', Mark Kelley and the fifth estate crew were often blocked by security guards when they tried to visit garment factories, as owners reacted to heightened scrutiny of their workplaces. One day, Kelley came across a factory full of workers processing jute, a kind of cheap plant fibre, into fabric. At that factory, the problem wasn't getting inside - it was getting back out again.
