Nostalgia for the Future

Nostalgia for the Future

'Nostalgia for the Future' is a film on Indian modernity, the making of the citizen and the architecture of the home. It looks at four distinct imaginations of homes and bodies across examples of buildings made over the period of a century. The film explores these spaces and the bodies that were imagined to inhabit them through the evocation of the cinematic and aural collective memory of a nation reinventing itself. The film is therefore shot on multiple formats - 16mm film and video, in both colour and black and white, along with archival footage from state propaganda films and mainstream cinema.

Usually I try to be careful with over hyping a film, or setting the expectations too high, as film geeks all are guilty for, however for Rohan Shivkumar, this really is not possible.
