Under The Turban, describing a family’s search for the meaning of being a Sikh, will be premiered at the 19th United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) in Palo Alto, Stanford University, East Palo Alto and San Francisco, 20-30 Oct 2016.

The film is produced by Persistent Productions, a production company based in Singapore and Boston.

What makes me a Sikh? That 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: meeting with a Maharaja, cheesemakers, fashionistas, farmers, and scholars to glean a better understanding of the world’s fifth largest religion, according to information at its website.

They had also made a pitstop in Singapore.
