Residents of Arcadia is a film about the immigrant experience; more specifically the story of an Italian man and an Indian woman in search for an ideal life in Canada. Sci-fi approach aside, the tale is based on the director’s experience as an immigrant from Italy to Canada and stories of Indian immigrants he encountered in his journey to become a Canadian citizen. The main theme of the film is the clash of the immigrant’s cultural identity against a new society while searching for a new ideal self: the image immigrants chase when they decide to move to a different country. It’s a story of belonging, loss and discovery of our own truthful self.
