Storyline

The myth of return. In 1966, Yash and Sheel Suri leave India for a temporary stay in England while he burnishes his resume as a doctor. He buys projectors, tape recorders, and movie cameras, and sends one set to India beginning a 40-year exchange of tapes and Super 8 movies between his family in India and his household near Manchester. We watch their three daughters grow and we hear increasingly plaintive calls from Yash's parents and sister to return home. In 1982, it's back to India where Yash sets up a practice. A return to England, one daughter's marriage, another's move to Australia, and the third's film project complete the 40-year story. Yash still loves his homeland. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Family documentary over two continents over decades
9 February 2006 | by regine-haardoerferSee all my reviews

I saw this documentary during the Sundance Festival in Salt Lake City. An Indian moves to England to work there as a doctor for a few years. Because the phone communication is insufficient and unsatisfactory, he buys two sets of audio and video equipment. He keeps on and sends the other to India. The film uses 40 years of video and audio tapes to tell the story of this family. I really like the film because it tells the story of a separated family using a unique view. The producer was in the very fortunate situation to have all this material and she did a marvelous job telling a simple story in a very beautiful way. Following this family over many decades with their struggles and joys is worth seeing.
