‘A miraculous mini-epic’ The Guardian

Directed by Sandhya Suri

This extraordinary documentary follows Yash Pal Suri, doctor and hobbyist filmmaker, who left India for England in 1965. On arrival, he buys projectors, tape recorders and Super-8 cameras, sending one set back home to India.

So begins a 40-year exchange of ‘cine-letters’, in which he shares his new life abroad with family back home. Rediscovered by his daughter, together they tell a bittersweet tale of one man’s story of migration and the myth of return.
