the First 9/11 Backlash Murder, and All Hate Crimes Victims
September 14, 2006
Divided We Fall makes its world premiere on the eve of the five-year memorial of the murder of Balbir Singh Sodhi in Phoenix, Arizona.
Hosted by the Phoenix Sikh community, the event honors the memory of Sodhi and all hate crimes victims.
Armed with only a camera, Valarie Kaur encounters hundreds of stories never before told – stories of fear and unspeakable loss, but also of resilience and hope – until she finally finds the heart of America, halfway around the world, in the words of a widow.
Weaving expert analysis into a personal journey and cross-country road trip, the film confronts the forces dividing a nation.
