Summary/Review: Sandhya Suri skilfully weaves together archival footage, including hand-colored sequences, with a new score by Soumik Datta to create an emotionally resonant story about life across India from 1899 to 1947. Drawn exclusively from the BFI National Archive, it features some of the earliest surviving films from India as well as gorgeous travelogues, intimate home movies, footage of Sabu and Gandhi, and newsreels from British, French and Indian filmmakers.
