The Film: ‘Under the Turban’, a documentary released in October 2016.
'What makes me a Sikh?' This question posed by nine year old Zara Garcha starts a family’s journey to learn about their religion. The Garcha family explores Sikhism, by visiting diverse Sikh communities around the world. Visiting with maharajas, cheesemakers, fashionistas, farmers and scholars to glean a better understanding of the world’s fifth largest religion.
Their journey begins in Parma where they meet Sikhs who have a hand in creating Italy’s iconic Parmesan cheese. From there the Garcha family heads east traveling to The Golden Temple in Sikhism’s holy city, Amritsar, learning about the historical foundations and social history of the religion.
Lived experience blends with academic insight as the family travels to the United Kingdom, Argentina, Canada and America gaining a better understanding of these modern Sikh communities and the fundamental aspects of this often misunderstood religion.
