“American Factory,” a film backed by the Obama’s Higher Ground Productions, won an Oscar Sunday for best documentary feature.

The film, which marks the first project produced by the former president and first lady, highlights a culture clash at a Dayton, Ohio, manufacturing plant.

The documentary, by filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, was released through Netflix as part of the Obamas’ lucrative deal with the streaming service.
