SAWCC is proud to present a screening of Sarah Singh’s award-winning documentary The Sky Below. This courageous and moving award-winning film on the Partition of India evokes both painful memories and raises powerful issues that continue to trouble the subcontinent. Lyrically shot on both sides of the Indo-Pakistani border, with a strong local ethos communicated through the music, the language, and the people, the film should be watched both by those who care about the legacy of the Partition, as well those trying to understand the complexities of fighting wars in those lands. The screening will be followed by a brief conversation with director.
Sarah Singh was born in Patiala, India, raised in the United States, and is a descendant from one of India’s royal families. She has held solo and group exhibits of her fine art both in India and the United States. Much of the work is in private collections. Currently, Singh has three photography exhibits on view and is working on a coffee table book of the region covered in her award-winning film.
