ITVS Community Cinema Presents A DREAM IN DOUBT by Tami Yeager

It was the first hate-based murder in the wake of September 11, 2001-one of thousands of reported and unreported hate crimes in the years that followed. The victim: a turbaned Sikh man in Mesa Arizona, where his family had sought religious freedom, searching for the American Dream. Meet a family still determined to believe in that dream, even as the nightmare continues for many religious and ethnic minorities in a climate of xenophobia and fear.

Panel Featuring: Dr. JP Singh, Founding Member of The Sikh Center of The San Francisco Bay Area and Jaideep Singh, Acting Director of The Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund.

Co-Sponsors: The Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund and The South Asian American FIlm and Arts Association.

Presented By: ITVS Comunity Cinema, KQED Education Network, The Oakland Museum of California, The Oakland Film Office and Hands On Bay Area

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP's recommended, email roseli_ilano [at] itvs.org
