Experiencing Interruptions?


There’s something missing in Bangladesh compared to the rest of the world. Although Information services are being developed, there’s still a lack of possibility to be able to talk to relatives or friends who are far away. Fortunately this belongs to the past: there are girls who carry the Internet with them and distribute it in every village. They are the Info Ladies.
This Film is a reflection on the figure of the fighting woman within a reality that does not yet favor the emancipation; it is the story of these women offer help to the inhabitants of a rural Bengali village; but even more this film wants to be a reflection on the digital, on the technological medium and on its influence on a so far deprived reality. The topic gradually widens to the point of creating in the audience the need to reflect on technology in general and on the intervention of the photographic medium. The sequence of close-ups makes this process palpable, allowing the viewer's eye to identify itself with the medium. Technology, which at first sight can be perceived as impersonal, becomes a human extension. Whoever connects travels overseas, but the director himself is in the overseas, enters the village up to the looks and slowly comes out of that world.
Overseas or simply staying here, the faces still serve, more than yesterday, to tell us what happens to our humanity and to where we can drive our attention.
