Third Annual Spinning Wheel Film Festival

The Spinning Wheel Film Festival presents films "by, about, and for Sikhs and the wider public." This year's festival, which will be held at the Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto, Canada from October 14-16, 2005, will feature a number of interesting films.

DNSI's own Valarie Kaur, as some of you may know, is traveling across the country working on her own film, "Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath," which is supported by the Sikh Film Foundation.

The Festival's site contains this description of "Divided We Fall":

A turbaned Sikh man was killed on September 15, 2001 by a man bent on eliminating anyone “Arab-looking.” The murderer screamed: “I am a patriot!” Similar stories of hate crimes swept across the nation in the aftermath of September 11. Armed with only a camera and a question, an American college student journeyed into the heart of a suffering nation in search of answers. She met people, some born and raised in America. Others who came seeking a better life and adopted a new land as their own home. All believed in the American dream. Captured on film are their stories – hundreds of them. Stories of sadness. Of unimaginable loss and fear. But hope, resilience, and love.

Their stories were never before shared. Until now.
Two filmmakers. One camera.
Fourteen American cities. Four months on the road.
One hundred hours of footage.
And the question: why?
I urge you to learn more about this film and attend the Festival.
