Film Screening: Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath


With a facilitated dialogue by psychosocial trauma expert, Dr. Siddharth Shah

- Thursday, Sept. 15, 6:30pm

A young woman travels through America in the days after 9/11 addressing the increase in hate crimes targeting the Sikh community.

In the fall of 2001 and in the weeks after 9/11, a young woman took off around the country documenting hate crimes against the Sikh American community–her community–with a video camera and a streak of bravery. What began as a solitary journey to document untold stories became an award-winning documentary film that inspired a movement for brave new dialogue about race and religion in America.

“Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath” is the first feature-length independent documentary film addressing hate crimes since September 11, 2001. Awarded the “Best International Documentary” by ReelWorld Film Festival 2007, Toronto, and “Audience Choice Best Documentary” at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles 2007.

This is a free event. Registration is not required.

This event is part of The 9/11 Arts Project, a citywide collaboration that will kick off a “year of healing,” with multi-venue and multi-genre events to take place around the anniversary and throughout the year.
