SIKH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2015: SHORT DOCS
The Road to Mandalay: The Burmese Sikhs
Directed by: Bobby Singh Bansal
The Road to Mandalay is a short documentary that charts the lives of the elusive Burmese Sikhs that have been living in Myanmar (Burma) since the 1860's. Not much is known about this country especially the minority Sikhs who are a thriving community although small in numbers, yet their success in trade, culture and commerce makes them a proud community that garners huge respect within Burmese society and government today.
