    This is an informal invitation from digital filmmaker in New York,


    All Sikh Philosophy membersare invited to a screening of the award-winning documentary Mistaken Identity: Discovering Sikh Neighbours, a film focusing on Sikh Americans, post-9/11. This documentary film has won the Golden Lion Award, the Remi Gold Statuette and the NYIIFV Festival in Hollywood, Los Angeles. It was first screened in Canada at the House of Commons in 2005 to great acclaim.

    Professor Sudan Burgeon, from Yuba College, California had this to say upon viewing the film:

    "I can truly say that this was the best film on Sikhism I have ever seen, especially in terms of building cross-cultural understanding. Both Sikhs and non-Sikhs loved the film. We had excellent discussion sessions after the viewing, and it provided the basis for dialogue between Sikhs and non-Sikhs. No other film has had such a strong impact on bringing together people of mixed cultures in a spirit of tolerance and understanding. In addition, the music was beautiful! The film had just the right mixture of elements: it was upbeat, yet deeply serious and moving. It is beautifully directed; it provides the viewers with many different voices and responses; it opens the doorway for tolerance and understanding; and it touches the heart. This is one of the most powerful and moving films I have seen. I give it my highest recommendation.”

    Come out for an evening of film, discussion and snacks.

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!
