SIKH INTERFAITH JOURNEY
El Sobrante Gurdwara Sahib is located in the hillside of the El Sobrante Valley, about twenty-five miles north of San Francisco, California USA. In the mid-1960s a handful of young students and professionals living in and around the San Francisco Bay Area had a vision of establishing a first unique place of worship in the metropolitan area. Humble beginnings started with laying the foundations of the Gurughar by the representatives from Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Sikh faiths. This unique piece of work not only talks about peace, harmony, and the feeling of brotherhood towards all humans, but it also shows the struggles and tribulations of the young students and the professionals of that time who achieved their vision of successfully completing and opening the Gurughar in 1980 against all odds.
A Muslim High School girl is bullied for wearing a Hijab. Sikh actress Aneesha Madhok and Chapman graduate Monet Weir star in the film, along with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Joseph Baena. Aneesha and Monet will discuss the film after its screening with Essraa Nawar of the Leatherby Libraries at Chapman University.
