I for India

   19 February 2008, early morning

Shima and I watched I for India a few days back. The movie is about an Indian family living in England, who communicate with their family back home via 8mm film and reel-to-reel audio tapes. The movie begins with the family moving to England in the late 70s, and follows their life through to the present day. The film was shot by the families youngest daughter. It’s an interesting look at the life of an immigrant, and that “you can never go home again” feeling that seems common to everyone I’ve met that lives abroad. I like films about the immigrant experience, so I suppose my opinions on the film are biased.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
