I FOR INDIA
Germany, UK 2005, 70 min
In 1965 Yash Pal Suri left India for the UK. The first thing he does on his arrival in England is to buy two Super 8 cameras, projectors and reel to reel recorders. One set of equipment he sends to his family in India, the other he keeps for himself. For forty years he uses it to share his new life abroad with those back home. A bitter-sweet time capsule of alienation, discovery, racism and belonging, "I for India" is a chronicle of immigration in sixties Britain and beyond, seen through the eyes of one Asian family and their movie camera.
