Under the Turban

The Fox International Fellowship is hosting a screening and discussion of the film “Under the Turban” on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at 4:30 p.m. in the Luce Hall auditorium, 34 Hillhouse Ave.

The film follows the members of the Garcha family, who embark on a journey to learn about their identity after 9-year-old Zara asks, “What makes me a Sikh?” The family visits diverse Sikh communities around the world: meeting with a Maharaja, cheesemakers, fashionistas, farmers, and scholars to glean a better understanding of the world’s fifth-largest religion. The documentary was selected for the United Nations Association Film Festival this year.
