DVD COMES WITH BONUS FEATURES INCLUDING:

This semi autobiographical art documentary film explores the making of and inspiration behind ‘Nineteen Eighty Four’ - one of the most celebrated paintings produced by internationally acclaimed, Contemporary British-Sikh artists, The Singh Twins, which depicts the Indian Government’s military attack on the Sikhs’ holy shrine at Amritsar in 1984 and presents a very personal perspective on what many regard as one of the most tragic and misrepresented events in modern Sikh history.


Combining archival images, video footage and details from the painting, the film reveals how what began as a spontaneous artistic response to the attack during their Catholic Convent school days, later became a powerful vehicle for highlighting the universality of political corruption and related issues of human rights abuses surrounding 1984 – culminating in a project that sought to bring the atrocities of ‘84 to a global audience by making parallels between the Sikh experience of ’84 and the Christian tradition of the ‘Via Dolorosa’ or ‘path of pain’ suffered by Jesus leading up to his crucifixion.
