UK Asian Film Festival


A film about the architecture of the home, modernity and the making of the Indian citizen, Nostalgia For The Future looks at imaginations of homes across four examples of buildings made over the period of a century. It uses a mix of formats including film and digital video in both colour and black and white, along with archival footage to bring to life the heritage of a nation.


The film is a collaboration between filmmaker Avijit Mukul Kishore and architect Rohan Shivkumar and emerges from the intersection of their respective disciplines – architecture and documentary film, looking at the role of architecture in imagining and constructing a nation and its citizens.


Followed by a Q&A with Professor Rosie Thomas.
