Sandhya Suri (2006)

On immigration to the UK in 1965, Mr. Suri makes 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 films his family and records a sound track, then ships them back home, and receives the same from India. A unique record of a family’s experience as outsiders to a larger society, and how this changes in the next generation.
