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. In this 40-year exchange of ‘cine-letters’ he shares his new life abroad with family back home.
The film will be followed by discussion led by members of the Asian Authors Bookclub who will also share books they have read around home, family and migration. Refreshments are available to purchase from the bar. All welcome, do bring a friend!
