Yellow Springs Filmmakers, Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert.

On Sunday night, Yellow Springs filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar won the Oscar for this year’s best feature-length documentary for their film "American Factory."

The film is an inside look at the Chinese-owned Fuyao auto glass factory in Moraine. It explores tough issues, including workers rights, intercultural communications, and the differences between American and Chinese management styles and work ethics.

During their acceptance speech, Bognar congratulated the “tough, inventive, great people of Dayton Ohio.”

American Factory is available right now on Netflix.
