Overview

Documentary filmmaker Liz Mermin receives unprecedented access to the wildly successful Office Tiger corporation, and the resulting meditation on the melding of Western business structure and Eastern work philosophy offers an absorbing study on the evolution of the global marketplace. Joseph Sigelman is the thirty-four-year-old co-founder and co-CEO of Office Tiger - a six-year-old business that rapidly expanded to employ over 3500 individuals on three continents. The goal of Office Tiger is to provide its clients - which consist primarily of law firms, investment banks, and consultancies - with highly secure processing of sensitive documents. In the wake of a particularly memorable New Yorker Magazine profile of the company, filmmaker Mermin was offered complete access Office Tiger's primary office in Chennai, India. It's here that Mermin and her team of filmmakers explore the energetic efforts of Sigelman in motivating his employees, the ultra-competitive nature of the workers who sacrifice their social lives for twenty-hour workdays, and team manager Nikhil's efforts to encourage his underlings to practice selfishness by delegating their work and thus having more time to plan their rise up the corporate ladder.
