Filmmaker Sarkar writes "Have you heard about our successful screenings of DVD "MISTAKEN IDENTITY: Discovering Sikh Neighbors". Winner of three first prize awards for documentary...it is the first film produced for mainstream America and part of a series of "getting to know the cultural and religious backgrounds of multicultural ethnic minority neighbors" in today's pluralistic society.
The 40-minute DVD documentary film is hosted by 22-year old Amanda Gesine, discovering her Sikh neighbors after 9/11 for the first time. She never had a Sikh friend in school or college and felt that racial profiling starts with ignorance and fear.
Visit our website, Cultural Diversity for more information where you can review three minutes of the film via streaming video.
DVDs are available for institutional Library Distribution $250.00 (copy of DVD or VHS, including written material/questionnaire, reviews) for the classroom and auditorium teaching of ethnic media, multicultural communications, divinity and comparative religions, modern and Asian anthropology, South Asian studies, human rights, tolerance, racial equality, etc. recommended for the attention of the Librarian.
We have requests for screenings of MISTAKEN IDENTITY-A 9/11 Story as "A Celebration of Cultural Diversity" for mainstream Americans, Canadian and British viewers. Especially, in places where there are large communities of Sikhs.
