The Moving Images film club, in association with the US Consulate General, is presenting an Indo-American Film Festival
from 19th to 21st February, at the Prasad Labs Preview Theatre. A total of 8 films will be screened during the 3-day festival.
Nalini By Day Nancy By Night is the first film on the last day of the film festival, at 3pm.
In this documentary, filmmaker Sonali Gulati explores the complex issues of globalization, capitalism and identity, through a witty and personal account of her journey into India’s call centers. Gulati, herself an Indian immigrant living in the US, explores the ramifications of outsourcing telephone service jobs to India, including how native telemarketers take on Western names and accents to take calls from the US, UK and Australia.
With observations on how call centers affect the Indian culture and economy, the film raises some questions about the complicated consequences of globalization. The movie consists of a juxtaposition of animation, archival footage, live action shots and narrative work.
Entry to the film is on a first-come-first-served basis. Please contact Moving Images at 90000-74950 for further details.
