Many Westerners embrace globalization—but do they grasp how profoundly their consumption and spending habits affect people thousands of miles away? Filmed entirely on location in Malawi, Ecuador, Nicaragua, India, and Guatemala, this five-part series illuminates what globalization means for citizens of those nations. Emotional and informative interviews with farmers, school teachers, community activists, and others reveal the human side of situations too often assessed only in terms of business and profit. Portions are in other languages with English subtitles. 5-part series, 26 minutes each.
