THE “MILL” IN MILLBURY: American Manufacturing amidst the Throes of Globalization. Film.

The Mill is an audiovisual journey through S&D Spinning Mill, a small-town textile manufacturer producing the yarn inside professional baseballs. The film takes a glimpse into one of the oldest sites of manufacturing in the United States, and examines the human impact of globalization on an American mill managing not only to survive in the age of deindustrialization, but to thrive.
