Dark Fibre is an important film about industrialisation in India, and more particularly about the risk that emerging economies may not choose to follow the path to democracy.
BANGALORE. THE ‘SILICON VALLEY’ OF INDIA. A mysterious private military contractor (Wintonick) rides into town with a mission to take control of the city’s dreams –– to master the desires of the burgeoning slums that his bosses believe will soon determine the world’s future. Meanwhile, young “cable wallah” Rama, who presides over micro-TV-empires in each of the city’s districts, begins to be pursued for a mysterious piece of ‘information’ he may have unwittingly received, and is forced to undertake a journey of discovery that puts him face to face with the foreigner and his plans for the future of India.
