You can catch a glimpse of Dayton on the big screen this fall when a star-powered movie filmed in parts of the city debuts in theaters.

The film stars Robert Redford as Forrest Tucker, a man who escaped prison at age 70 to conduct a string of heists; Sissy Spacek as the man's love interest; and Casey Affleck as the detective working to track down Tucker. The film also stars Danny Glover.

'American Factory' filmmakers, Fuyao executives celebrate Oscar win

 

steven_bognar_and_julia_reichert_accept_

 

For the first time since winning the Oscar for best documentary, local filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar returned to Fuyao Glass America to celebrate with company leaders. And while top Fuyao executives took issue with some of what they perceived as negative aspects in the film, the pair were welcomed with open arms.

 

Like they've done countless times before, Reichert and Bognar — who live in Yellow Springs — walked through the doors of Fuyao prior to a celebration Wednesday at the nearby Taste of the World restaurant. Only this time, they had their Oscars in tow.

 

The Oscars were for their documentary, "American Factory," which examined the trials and tribulations associated with standing up a massive auto glass factory in the former General Motors plant in Moraine. Shortly after arriving, Reichert and Bognar met with Fuyao Glass Industry Group Chairman Cho Tak Wong and Fuyao Group North America President and CEO Jeff Liu.

 

The filmmakers received a warm welcome from both men, who provided them with gifts as a gesture of good will. The embrace was a culmination of years of filming, for which their efforts paid off.

 

"We miss coming to this factory," Bognar said. "We were here day after day after day, and we really got to know a lot of the people. As tough and challenging as it can be, it's also where things are really happening. It feels alive and vital."
