  1. "How far would you go to stand up for human rights? In India, on the 16th January 2015 an 83yr old lifelong political activist went on hunger strike to force the Indian Government to free several political prisoners. He has now been hungry for over 500 days... Some continue to be detained long beyond completion of their sentence. Some have been tortured and falsely imprisoned. Others are arrested and just seem to disappear... This is the story of Surat Singh Khalsa, and his Hunger for Humanity." Sangat Ji, ik benti, In January 2016, UK based Documentary and Film Production Company GraySkull Media, managed to get an exclusive and secret interview with Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa. Efforts are currently underway to raise funds for the production of a documentary. Once the film is complete, if there are any profits made whatsoever from any sale of the film to a distributor or sponsor, the production team at GraySkull Media pledges 100% of the profits after production costs are paid, to the bereaved families of the 1984 Sikh Genocide and two other Human Rights charities, which will be selected by the family of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa. Please share the link below and donate so we can show the world the activism and struggle of Bapu Surat Singh. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hunger-for-humanity-bapu-surat-singh-khalsa-india#/ Dhanvaad
  2. Hello, We are documentary filmmakers Rehmat Kaur Rayatt (www.rehmatrayatt.com) and Leva Kwestany. We have spent the last year working on a documentary filmed in Punjab, northern India in October 2014 and are currently in post-production, with the film due to be completed by April 2016. The feature film, Toxification, examines the plight of Punjabi farmers through their own personal stories and the perspectives of authorities and academics. The trailer can be found here: We believe that the voices of the farmers themselves are missing from other documentaries on the subjects we deal with, such as drug abuse, overuse of chemicals (e.g. pesticide) on the soil, depletion of water levels and ultimately, suicide. On a personal level it is important for us to share the heart-wrenching stories that we have captured; Rehmat feels a particular connection to her homeland, Punjab, and Leva is passionate about the environment and caring for our planet and the creatures that live on it. We'd like to invite you to follow us on social media to keep up to date with the film. We're launching a crowdfunding campaign soon hoping to raise £5000, and details of how you can donate and share the campaign, as well as the chance to win prizes, can be found here: facebook: https://www.facebook.com/rehmatrayattphotographerfilmmaker/ twitter: @toxificationdoc instagram: @toxificationdoc website (launching soon): www.toxification.com / www.rehmatrayatt.com/toxification Thanks for supporting us, and please do get in touch and reply if you’d like to work with us in any way or have any comment or thoughts on the topic.

  3. Greetings to all, My name is Jaginder Singh and I am an independent film maker based in Perth, Western Australia. Post 9/11, there have been many hate crimes (retaliatory) attacks on Muslims and persons that are assumed to be Muslims. I now hate flying as they "randomly" make me jump the hoops to get through security (not that I am saying security if unimportant) but, I know that the inconvenience that I face is nothing compared to what some others may have to endure on a regular basis just because they are Muslims or even look like a Muslim. This thought has always been in my mind but I when I read about the massacre in Wisconsin I felt extremely distraught. I remember feeling the same way during the attacks on 9/11. A sinking feeling of disgust and indescribably hurt. Don't let my name or my words fool you, I am not even remotely religious but I felt I was attacked too. I feel the need to document this controversial issue but I had other projects then. Now a year later, I am about to embark on my latest project, a documentary about mistaken identity and racial profiling. I do however, have a dilemma on what would be the most apt tittle for my documentary. This where I need your insight as a community/sangat. Should I call it *Dude, I am not a Muslim* or *Dude, I am not a terrorist* What's in the name you may ask? A lot. If we were to call it the former, one may be accused of alienating Muslims though the intention is to shed light on the fact that you not all colored people are Muslims and not all Muslims are colored people. Focus will fall on the turbaned Sikhs as they have the uncanny resemblance to terrorism's most famous poster boy, Osama bin Laden (at least to a layman). It would be controversial and intriguing hence more bums on the seat hence may possible attract more investors, something every indie film maker struggles with. Of course, there would be a segment about peace loving Muslims as well for it is not my intention to portray Muslim as terrorist. The latter may be more politically correct and the focus would be that not all Muslims are terrorist and also the subject above which is not all colored people are Muslims. We would still do segments of turbaned Sikhs and attacks on non Muslims and Muslims alike. I hope I am making sense and that everyone can freely voice the opinion or even disgust (?). I have created 2 FB pages for this reason, feel free to drop by and check them out too. https://www.facebook.com/dudeiamnot https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dude-I-am-not-a-Muslim/690950187585172 Jinder Perth
