On August 30, the first international movie of the semester, Outsourced, was shown. Filmed in Seattle, Washington and India, this 2006 movie follows Todd Anderson (Josh Hamilton), an American who sells novelty products. When Todd learns that his department is being outsourced, he heads to India to train his replacement. Today, outsourcing is common as businesses can move their labor to places where wages are cheaper. This movie also stars British-Indian actress Ayesha Dharker and was filmed in the English language.
This movie was also shown to kick off the spring semester on January 25, 2012.
