What’s this? A long shot of a factory with three banderas? Videographer No Cinema explains:

Recorded during production in a Tijuana industrial facility the same day that the NAFTA Agreement was re-negotiated with the United States, Canada and Mexico under Mexican president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. The three North American flags represent the NAFTA free trade agreement, a "soft power" tactic for neoliberal practices, the extracting nations of global capitalism and of course, an example of a space that hosts work force, labor and migration. Since late 1970's maquiladoras became a strong economical support for migrants men and woman from the South America, the city provided labor thru the maquiladoras under the expenses of exploitation.
