Shield of Faith Movie

While Breakaway/SpeedySinghs seems to be the talk of the town, earlier this week, a friend (pagh salute: download!) pointed this new movie to me. It seems it is still in production and is a labor of love for Sikh-Australian, Rupinder Singh. On the internet there are few details about the movie.

Here is their description:

Visionary film by Rupinder Singh creating an original epic docu-feature based on some prominent events in Sikh history. The film takes the audiences to a thrilling journey where they learn about the difficult time on the Sikh community and about how they still came out victorious in spite of being tested by the time.

Labeled as a “docu-drama” the breath-taking views and professional camera pans seem like a quality production. Although I have some reservations with the period costumes, despite claims on the website for a “special emphasis” [note the contemporary Nihang weaponry and costume and contrast with the historical reconstruction – though it has been alleged to be Afghan – at the London exhibit], I will definitely go out and watch it. In fact, I just made a contribution!

Make a contribution, “like” their facebook page, check out their website, or just watch their trailer.

    Is there anyone from Brown who can explain this movie to me? Rutgers will do in a pinch. Also I sneezed today and said a blessing, does that have anything to do with my yearning for an imagined homeland? Can someone from a anthropology graduate program figure that out, k thnx bye.

    For the record the deleted was a joke regarding the Punjabi word for flatulence and the performance of authenticity, nothing more risque than that

  8. Is there kantay says:

    It’s a hyper masculine signifier of an imagined homeland

    @Kantay: stop acting like a [email protected]#k…you are not impressing anyone!

    I’m trying to suggest a point about a mode and of discource and the way it serves or might serve to exclude or even oppress, its not meant to make anyone upset. I don’t mean anything against anyone. Sikh masculinity is a topic that should create back and forth discussion instead of received wisdom right ons about the supposed fact of hyper masculine Sikh men, who have been often heavily defined as problems.

    Thank you for the compliment, but even if I don't write an essay hopefully a broader point about questioning attitudes will be made.

    this article is somewhat appropriate: wonder if Tagore had a map of undivided Bengal?

  14. Many countries in the world now realized the importance of education and their attention more towards the education, they make more beneficial policies for spreading the education all over their nation and access of everyone in their world could get educated and be a educated part of the nation.
