Toronto, Canada (March 13, 2013): The Canadian Sikh Coalition (CSC) presents the Toronto screening of Bhaar – a film on the real life story of a young Sikh male who was subjected to torture by the Indian police.
Through the eyes of one man’s experiences, this film provides insight into the complex political and social atmosphere of Punjab in the 1980s.
This dark era of Punjab’s history is characterized by violence and the repression of the Sikh nation. There is very little documentation from this era as it as not recorded or purposely destroyed.
Now, a new generation is using creative means such as film to open discussion on a closed chapter of Punjab’s history. This story is just a drop in the ocean when it comes to representing the events within Punjab in the past 3 decades.
Watch the trailer and join us on March 23 and 24 in the pursuit to ensuring that we maintain an open discourse on Punjab’s historical and current position and ensure the safety of our land and our people.
