Following the end of the British rule of India in 1947, the Sikh community was caught up in a conflict of a 'two nation' split of the sub-continent. It forced them to abandon their homes, leaving behind numerous gurdwaras (places of worship), historic forts, havelis (private mansions) and monuments attesting to a once flourishing Sikh Empire. Amardeep Singh decided to visit these important and sacred sites, embarking on a month-long journey into 36 cities & villages in Pakistan in 2014. The discoveries made on this journey inspired him to continue to explore his forebears’ history. He undertook a second trip to 90 cities & villages in Pakistan Administered Kashmir, Sindh, Baluchistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and West Punjab in 2017. During his second visit, Amardeep took some candid video footage of the field explorations, focusing on architectural feats and landmarks and capturing a sense of place and time. His two candid documentary films, Peering Soul and Peering Warrior permeate a sense of nostalgia and also highlight the breath-taking beauty of landscape and architecture.
