1‐800‐INDIA

55 min., DVD

Produced by Anna Cater


Memorial Library Microforms/Media

Center Room 443

HD2365 A12 2006

Over the past decade, India has emerged as the leader in the global market for

outsourced white‐collar jobs, one reason for the nation’s rapid economic growth. This WIDE ANGLE case study explores the experiences of emerging Indian professionals who have been recruited into positions requiring long hours, late‐night shifts, and Westernized work habits. The program reveals the human and cultural impact of a controversial yet essentially unstoppable global economic trend, examining its effect on Indian family life, on the evolving landscape of urban India, and on the aspirations and daily lives of young Indian citizens, especially women, as they enter the work force. In addition, anchor Daljit Dhaliwal discusses social, political, and economic development in India with Michael Elliott, editor of Time International.

DS486 B7 S4 2006

To the seven goddesses who reign over Bom Bahia / Bombay / Mumbai.

The multilingual Bombay, the Bombay of closed mills, of popular culture, sprawling slums and real estate onslaughts, the metropolis of numerous ghettos, the El Dorado. A tale of the city through a tapestry of fiction, cinema vérité, art objects, found footage, sound installation and literary texts.


The narrative is structured around imaginary debates between Ismat Chugtai and Sadat Hasan Manto over the art of chronicling these multi‐layered overlapping cities. Shot mainly during the monsoon the film portrays some extremely beautiful yet ruthlessly violent features of Bombay which, generally, are not part of the popular narratives.

Afghanistan: Exploring the Taliban Revolution

24 min., VHS




Center for South Asia Outreach Video

Lending Library (phone: 608‐262‐9224)




In Afghanistan, the Taliban militant Sunni fundamentalists schooled in Pakistan have

taken over almost all of the country. Will their jihad spread to the Sunni minority of Iran, igniting a rebellion against that country's Shiite government? Or will Iran strike first, through the Shiite minority living in Afghanistan? This compelling report, filmed by the first crew to enter Afghanistan after America's anti‐terrorist air‐strikes in 1998, takes a first‐hand look at both the results and the implications of escalating tensions between Afghanistan and its neighbors.
