King of Calls: Telemarketers in India /

In a call center in India, young sales agents struggle to sell an unmarketable product and are at risk for losing their jobs. This poignant but humorous film points up the absurdities that can occur in the global telemarketing industry. Equipped with new American names and rudimentary English, they begin to pursue customers. Confusion reigns supreme, and no sales are made as the agents frantically dial, fearing the loss of their precious jobs. Dist.: Films Media Group. 2008. 29 min.
