Mass Production is a video installation that shows the printing cycle of the Financial Times from four unbroken long take shots. The factory is a small part of the News Corp empire, owned by mass media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
The same machine is also used to produce other right wing publications such as The Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Sun amongst others. Over the course of the 15-minute video installation we witness the making of 60,000 newspapers.
