Films Screening


Jitt De Nishan: Signs of victory is the life journey of Sikh couple Bapu Nahar Singh and his wife Jind Kaur who were bystanders of the revolutionary eras (partition of India-Pakistan 1947, Sikh genocide 1984 and Farmers’ Protest, 2020) in Punjab state. They lost their loved ones in these tough times, but they still stand in pride with the blessings of God to serve for the community.


Jaagdi Neend is a documentary that speaks about the takeover of technology on our generation and upcoming generations. Mr. Harpreet Singh Khalsa and Mr. Tarunpreet Singh explores the issue in their own way and through their knowledge of Gurbani – Sikh Teaching.


A documentary on women’s liberation and Women’s Studies features several Sikh/Southeast Asia women whose careers are illustrative of the success that women have had. Interviews include several professors and others involved in early Women’s Studies departments, as well as female politicians well-known for their stance on social justice issues. Support for this film helps everyone better understand the history of the women’s rights movement, and why there is still a need to promote equality for women.


This film showcases the first Contemporary Sikh Fine Art exhibit, “Expressions of Divinity” at the Triton Museum Santa Clara; the first of its kind at a museum in the United States. The exhibition marked the beginning of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. The paintings by prominent Sikh artists express their devotion to the Guru and his message to the world and the works of emerging Sikh artists explore the contemporary identities informed by their heritage and historical events. The film presents an absorbing narrative about museum spaces reflecting their communities and the artworks themselves.


Loop is a short film about the struggle of doing the same things over and over again until you stop wanting to do anything.


Davinder Singh, Manpreet Dhillon, Harpreet Kalsa, Hansjeet Duggal, Kasif Alvi, Ishaan Singh and A.K. Sandhu discuss their films screened in this session.
