As Vaisakhi is upon us and the annual Selma Nagar Kirtan will be happening on Sunday, April 24th, we kindly invite the entire Sikh Sangat to join us for a SPECIAL PREVIEW of the Khalistan Centre's documentary, the Battle of Amritsar.
This documentary looks to the Battle of Amritsar as a guiding light to the future rather than a painful memory of the past. We will be screening this at the PAARAS SIKH YOUTH CENTER at 6pm on Saturday, April 23, 2022.
By connecting viewers with the spirit of Sikh sangarsh (struggle) embodied by the jujharoos (warriors), the film is a soulful exploration of a momentous event in Sikh history. Based on interviews of those present throughout the battle, the film will take a deeper look at what the Battle of Amritsar means for the Sikh panth through the eyes of those who witnessed and participated directly.
The 2.5 hour documentary is in PUNJABI. Interlaced with powerful archival footage, a traditional Sikh soundscape, and soul-piercing poetry, this film is an artistic tapestry that seeks to capture the soul of Sikh resistance.
Facing a myriad of similar challenges and provocations today, the film revisits the Battle of Amritsar from a Sikh perspective to learn from those gurmukhs (Guru-oriented beings) about how to face our situation today with similar clarity and fortitude.
We hope you bring your family and join us SATURDAY evening at 6pm BEFORE the Nagar Kirtan in Selma on Sunday.
