SIKHS [in space]

 

2010 documentary about the Sikh community in Leeds. In this film I pose the question, "If you were going to go into space, think about the things you might need from your religion that are important to you?" Following this line of enquiry, I develop the idea of the "Sikh spaceship" - a hypothetical vessel in the shape of the Sikh symbol, the Khanda, designed to spread the core ideologies of Sikhism throughout the galaxy...

Many thanks to my old work mates Nish and Gurjit, to Jas Jit Singh who kindly took time out of his busy schedule to read passages from the Guru Granth Sahib, and to all of the very helpful and friendly people I met at the temple in Chapeltown.
