With all the young filmmakers in town this week holding court after screenings of their work, you could get a free education on what it takes to carve an independent path in this competitive industry.
Tonight at 7 at the Harvard Film Archive, 25-year-old writer/producer Valarie Kaur will screen and talk about her film "Divided We Fall," which is in its final stages of production. Kaur traveled the country after Sept. 11 to document hate crimes committed against people who "looked Arab" and the effects of this new atmosphere on Sikhs, Muslims, and Arabs in America. The film took Kaur, who is Sikh, to Punjab, India, where her grandfather grew up, to interview the widow of Balbir Singh Sodhi, the Sikh gas station owner who was murdered in Mesa, Arizona, on Sept. 15, 2001.
