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.
EXPRESSIONS OF DIVINITY
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.
