SIKH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2011: SHORTS
Let It Out
Directed by Gulshan Singh
Let It Out is a music video addressing the topic of bullying and harassment in schools. The film concerns a young Sikh boy who remains faithful to his religion but is bullied because he looks different. The music video describes how he is bullied and how this treatment makes him feel. The boy eventually learns how to deal with bullying. He learns that bullies aren't as tough as they act, and he is fully capable of handling the situation without resorting to violence. By sticking with a friend when confronting a bully and acting with confidence, the conflict can be peacefully resolved. However, the most important thing to remember is to not bottle up your emotions, and instead talk to someone and "Let It Out."
