Second Sunday Culture Films Series
I for India (2006)
On immigrating to the UK in 1965, Mr. Yash Pal Suri made his first purchase—a super 8 camera and reel-to-reel recorder—for himself, and another set for his family back in India. At least once a month he filmed his family and recorded a soundtrack, then shipped them back home, receiving the same from India. I for India, directed by Mr. Suri's daughter, Sandhya Suri, offers a unique record of a family’s experience as outsiders to a larger society, and how this changes in the next generation. Dr. Amardeep Singh, English and Post-Colonial Literature, Lehigh University, facilitates a post-film discussion. The South Asia Center and Cinema Studies at Penn are cosponsors of this program. Free with Museum admission. For more information, call 215.898.2680.
