Who: Anna Cater, Filmaker; Producer, "1-800-India"
Event:
Over the past decade, India has emerged as the leader in the global market for white-collar "outsourcing" jobs—a notable component of India's rapid economic growth. A dramatic and personal film, “1-800-INDIA” explores the experience of young Indian men and women who have been recruited into these new jobs requiring long hours, night shifts, and westernized work habits. The film reveals the human and cultural impact of a sweeping global trend, exploring its effect on Indian family life, on the evolving landscape of Indian cities and towns, and on the aspirations and daily lives of young Indians, especially women, entering the work force. The screening will be followed by a discussion with "1-800-India" Producer Anna Cater.
