I for India

In 1965 Yash Pal Suri left India with his wife and his young daughter to attend a medical school in the United Kingdom. Once in England, the first thing he did was buying two Super 8 mm cameras, two projectors and two tape recorders, and sent half of the equipment to his family back in India.
For forty years, he shared his life abroad with those back home. As time passed by and their return to India was becoming more and more unlikely, the joy and curiosity that had followed their change of life made room for dark feelings caused by alienation, racism and by the awareness that the family was falling apart. “I for India” is a story of emigration and belonging, mainly told through videos filmed with a Super 8 mm camera and through audio letters exchanged between India and England.
