Bata Company has created and experimented the first example of globalised city in the 1930's through several continent and countries. By homogenising architecture and worker’s life it shaped a transnational community: Bata men and women.
It's not about one specific city but on several. Six cities created by Bata are mixed in my movie: Zlin (Czech Republic), Batadorp (Holland), Bataville (France), Bata Park (Switzerland) and Batanagar (India). Archive shots and interviews are from East Tilbury (England).
This movie is an overview of this industrial and functionalist creation using the same tool as the company to develop its critic toward Bata’s piece: propaganda.
