Thankfully, the most interesting piece in this program by Philadelphia-based filmmaker Sonali Gulati is also the longest. Nalini by Day, Nancy by Night (2005), a 27-minute documentary about India’s thriving call-center industry, displays such curiosity about its subject that it ends up taking in a lot more, from the English-language schools that flourish around call centers to the professional anxieties of India’s upper middle class. Gulati is refreshingly ambivalent here, admitting to her own antiglobalization bias while acknowledging the positive effects that telemarketing has had on local economies. Less ambivalent—and far less compelling—are the autobiographical shorts about Gulati’s sexual identity clashing with her traditional Indian background, well-meaning stuff that nonetheless plays like an undergrad gender studies seminar.
