Celebration of Sikh Film

The Spinning Wheel Film Festival comes back to the Northern California Bay Area on February 3. Celebrating the stories of Sikhs worldwide, the festival brings diverse interpretations of their culture, identity and history to the screen. Started in Toronto three years ago and named after the Punjabi “charkha” spinning wheel, the festival’s lineup so far includes a short film on the Sikh martial arts form called Gatka, The Gold Bracelet—the award-winning directorial debut from veteran actor Kavi Raz, Who Do you Think You Are – Gurinder Chadha, a look at the successful director’s family history, from London to Kenya to India to Pakistan and Amu, the story of a 21 year-old Indian American woman who returns to India for the first time as an adult and stumbles onto the secrets of her past, set against the backdrop of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
