Seattle Movie Outsourced Debuts
SEATTLE, WA (2007-09-26) Offshore outsourcing is often a topic of controversy.
A new Seattle movie tackles the topic with a light touch.
Outsourced tells the story of a call-center manager who has to lay off his entire staff and then travel to India to train his replacement.
The movie won the Golden Spaceneedle award for the most popular movie at this year's Seattle International Film Festival and there's a special local screening tonight (Wed.), before its nation-wide release on Friday.
KPLU's Bellamy Pailthorp sat down with the film's director, John Jeffcoat.
