2007-10-01 A Dream In Doubt
Directed by Tami Yeager (2007, 56 min, Color, DigiBeta, USA) English, Punjabi with English subtitles.  In the wake of 9/11, the fear of terrorism shook the nation, resulting in retaliatory attacks on innocent individuals across the country. This powerful documentary scrutinizes one such incident--the murder of Mesa, Arizona resident Balbir Singh Sodhi, a Sikh businessman who was mistaken for an Arab terrorist because of the turban he wore as part of his faith.

A collection of old photographs and in-depth interviews with the victim's brother Rana reveal the hopes and dreams the Sodhi family brought to America, as immigrants eager to start a new life. In this searching account, Tami Yeager documents a family's struggle to come to terms with the senselessness of a killing, resulting in a powerful film that contextualizes a family's grief with the tragic scope of surrounding events.
