"Stumble"

An evening with Prakash Belawadi
co-presented by 3rd i and South Asian Studies Institute @ SF State

What happens when middle-class people get caught up in the dizzying
spell and allure of Information Technology, finance and real estate?
They STUMBLE. This is what popular Kannada theatre person and director
Prakash Belawadi tries to say in his English languge film.

Stumble offers a snapshot of ordinary lives trapped in the
extraordinary "gold rush" of Bangalore (India). It speaks of how
people in India, who opt for early retirement, struggle after
investing their money in stock markets. Alongside, the movie deals
with how young Bangaloreans who join hi-tech companies cope with the
turbulence and joblessness when the technology "bubble" burst in an
emerging economy such as India. Directed by: Prakash Belawadi,
fiction, 120 min.

A Q&A and discussion will follow the film. Additionally, Prakash
Belawadi leads a local theatre company and is a leading advocate for
democratic urban planning and strives to preserve the vanishing
cosmopolitan past that made Bangalore the chosen city for many in
India and abroad.
