    Changing Gears: End of An Era Changing Gears is a documentary film about the changes in the manufacturing industry and its effects throughout the Midwest. With the historical and sociological context of the Middletown studies, the film examines the continuing decline of industry in and around Muncie, Indiana, which experienced a boom of industrial growth in the 1890s that thrived into the 1980s. The end of Muncie's manufacturing era is illustrated with the 2009 closing of Borg Warner (formerly Warner Gear). Borg Warner's legacy "the creation of the differential gear and automatic transmission" is forever tied to the U.S. auto industry and lives on each year when the winner of the Indianapolis 500 is presented with the Borg Warner trophy. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG

    Dabbawallas This documentary explores a form of work that has existed in Bombay, India for more than 100 years. Each day 4,000 Dabbawallas (box persons) deliver 100,000 lunches at high levels of reliability. This delivery system functions without any of the trappings of modern day work, such as technology, business procedures and practices, and so on. The program focuses on what people in more-developed countries can learn from workers in less-developed countries, the reliance upon human and social ingenuity for organizing rather than relying on external mechanisms such as technology, and according respect for the seldom-heard voices of disadvantaged populations in India.
