    American Made - Premiere, Tue, May 9, PBS

    Acclaimed short film about a Sikh American family after 9/11
    premieres on PBS' Independent Lens starting Tuesday, May 9, 2006.

    http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/americanmade/index.html

    American Made (http://americanmadethemovie.com) is a story about a
    Sikh American family in the aftermath of 9/11.

    When the Singh family's car breaks down in the desert, Ranjit tells
    his father that no one will stop to help because "he looks like a
    terrorist."

    What follows is the heart-rending struggle between a father and son
    and a larger exploration of faith, tradition, acceptance, and what
    it means to be 'American' today.

    Told with humanity and humor, American Made has won seventeen awards
    from film festivals around the world.

    It will likely be the first fictional film about Sikh Americans post-
    9/11 on national television.

    Director Sharat Raju's next project is a full-length documentary
    film Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath (http://dwf-
    film.com) to be released in Fall 2006.
