Summary
Turbans is a presentation of National Asian American Telecommunications Assoc. and Different Drum Productions with funding provided by the CPB. It is a lyrical short drama set in the lush, green Oregon of 1918. It explores the conflict within an Asian Indian immigrant family torn between cultural traditions and a strong desire for social acceptance. Based on the memoirs of the filmmaker's grandmother, Turbans illuminates issues of assimilation faced by all immigrants. The compelling story concerns the young Singh boys who, although born in the U.S., are attacked for being different. The turbans they wear, a tradition sacred to their Sikh ancestors, identify them as outsiders in the prejudiced landscape of their time and place. Their father makes a tough, heart-breaking decision that brings us face-to-face with the harsh realities of racial intolerance. Based on the memoirs of Kartar Dhillon. Originally shot in 35mm
