Personal History with Gates
October 14, 2007
Today when I was filming a worker from Alpine Demolition came walking towards me. I thought he was going to kick me out and I was dreading the interaction. Turns out, he just wanted to chat and I’m happy he did. He, his mother and grandmother all worked at the Gates Factory! Now he is on the demolition team. Needless to say, he has mixed feelings about the situation. I’ve been wanting to interview people with a personal history/relation with the factory, but I figured it would be merely impossible to find these people, especially under my time constraints. Instead, they found me.
