SIKH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2010: DOCUMENTARY
Musafer
Directors/Producers: Michael Nijhawan and Khushwant Singh

Musafer is an independent documentary film that has been shot in Frankfurt, Paris, London, Delhi and San Francisco between 2003 and 2009. The film portrays the interconnected lives of a younger generation of diasporic Sikhs by giving emphasis to their artistic expressions and in depth conversations about the meaning of Sikhi in times of political upheaval and social uncertainty.

Musafer does not attempt to portray the Sikh tradition in its entirety but instead sheds light on the inner and outer journeys of particular individuals, their homing desires as well as their boundary crossing endeavors.
