American Made Television Premiere

Acclaimed short film about a Sikh American family after 9/11 premieres on PBS' Independent Lens starting May 9, 2006.

http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/americanmade/index.html

American Made ( http://americanmadethemovie.com ) is a story about a Sikh American family in the aftermath of 9/11. When the Singh family's car breaks down in the desert, Ranjit tells his father that no one will stop to help because "he looks like a terrorist." What follows is the heart-rending struggle between a father and son and a larger exploration of faith, tradition, acceptance, and what it means to be 'American' today. Told with humanity and humor, American Made has won seventeen awards from film festivals around the world. It will likely be the first fictional film about Sikh Americans post-9/11 on national television. Starring Kal Penn, Bernard White, Te'Amir Sweeney, and Sakina Jaffrey. Director Sharat Raju's next project is a full-length documentary film Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath (http://dwf-film.com) to be released in Fall 2006.
