Lovely villa architecture as autobiography /
"Every house is haunted by the spirits of those [who] are yet to come, and of those that came before. We are all marked by the architecture of the homes we live in. 'Lovely Villa' is the name of the apartment building where the filmmaker grew up in as he studied to become an architect. It is an LIC (Life Insurance Corp. of India) colony designed by Charles Correa and represents an imagination of the ideal community for a modern India. The film explores the architecture of the colony through a personal narrative. Using found materials, like old photographs and drawings, and stories that range from family histories and other narratives--both semi-fictional and documentary, the film highlights some of the specific architectural gestures of the project. This is [a] film about the relationship between architecture, everyday life, family, coming of age, desire, and the memory of 'home.'"--Container.

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."--IMBd
