1984, When The Sun Didn't Rise

On Wednesday 21st February, EY Sikh Network will be showing a documentary called ‘1984, When The Sun Didn’t Rise.’ We will be joined by Teena Kaur Pasricha who has produced the film.

1984 took 5 years to film and chronicles the lives of women who live in Delhi’s Widow Colony, which houses the widows of the Sikh men who were killed in the violence which continued for four days after Indira Gandhi was assassinated.

The documentary captures the struggles women have faced as a result of the November 1984 Pogroms.

One of the key themes portrayed in the documentary is the ongoing hardships faced by single mothers and how tough it has been for them to raise their children in an atmosphere of despair.
