Film Review: Look for the Small Print
‘Look for the Small Print’, a documentary film made by Jobin K Andrews, was screened on 3rd March 2012 at SCM Hall, Bangalore. The film screening was organized by Peoples’ Solidarity Concerns-Bangalore (that includes the New Socialist Alternative – CWI India).
The film depicts the impact of globalisation on the personal lives of especially software professionals, in the Silicon Valley of India – Bangalore, by centring around a typical working day in the life of a fictional young family. The film revolves around the precarious lifestyles of these young people in Urban India today, which while embracing the materialism of the west, is yet to come to terms with issues ranging from job insecurity, work pressure, marital discord to the issue of environmental degradation that is happening all round, under capitalist globalisation.
