Nineteen Eighty-Four and the Via Dolorosa Project


DVD - Product ID: DVD_1984


Product Description


This semi autobiographical art documentary film explores the making of and inspiration behind Nineteen Eighty-Four - one of the most celebrated paintings created by The Singh Twins, which depicts the Indian Government's military attack on the Sikhs' holiest shrine at Amritsar, in June1984 - and presents a very personal perspective on what many regard as one of the most tragic and misrepresented events in modern Sikh history.  In their aim to raise awareness about the human rights abuses and atrocities perpetrated against the Sikhs  - both, during the attack on the temple itself and in November the same year, when Indian Government Officials instigated the open massacre of thousands of more innocent Sikhs across India's Capital of Delhi) - the film combines archival footage and stills, details from their painting and poetry to convey the deep sense of devastation, injustice and betrayal felt by the global Sikh community. It also relates the Sikh experience of suffering in 1984 to the Christian tradition of the Suffering of Christ ('Via Dolorosa') - thereby  presenting the Sikh sentiment through the eyes of a faith much more widely understood in the world today.
