    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
