DIVIDED WE FALL: AMERICANS IN THE AFTERMATH
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 AT 5:00PM | ADMISSION FREE! • SUGGESTED DONATION: $5
“With a reception on the outdoor patio beginning at 4:00PM, and a panel discussion to follow the film.
In the aftermath of Sept. 11th, a college student journeys across America with a camera and captures stories of hate and healing in the Sikh American community. What begins as a solitary journey to document untold stories became an award-winning documentary film that inspired a movement for brave new dialogue about race and religion in America. Considered the definitive film on the Sikh experience since 9/11, the film is a powerful educational piece for all audiences. (Dir. by Sharat Raju, 2006, USA, 110 mins, Not Rated)”
