Event Details (RW2019)
Monday 21st January at 3pm: I for India (Sandhya Suri, 2005) introduced by Dr Ciara Chambers, Film and Screen Media.
"A movie that's both deeply personal and surprisingly universal" (Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times), I for India charts one family’s migration from India to the United Kingdom. Through home movie footage and audio tapes exchanged between relatives instead of letters, director Sandya Suri presents an achingly nostalgic portrait of migration, family separation and an ongoing quest for belonging and personal happiness. "Rarely has 'home-movie' material been used in such a clever yet moving way. I FOR INDIA reminds us all that there are real people behind the terms 'immigrant' and 'alien.' It's a must-see for everyone"(Eric Monder, Film Journal International).
All welcome. Organised by Department of Film and Screen Media
