A Documentary on Guru Nanak's Travels Across 9 Nations
(Production in collaboration with SIKHLENS Destination S program)
To spread the message of humanity, Guru Nanak covered a large geographical tapestry. In the 21st century this area comprises of 9 nations: Pakistan, India, China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan. To break barriers across faiths by engaging in spiritual dialogues, Guru Nanak visited more than 150 Islamic, Sufi and Hindu sites to seek and impart spiritual wisdom. However, today, the narrative stands limited to gurdwaras at Nankana Sahib, Kartarpur Sahib and Panja Sahib.
Thus, today, there is a compelling need to explore and film the sites visited by Guru Nanak so that the faded memories can be kept alive. This appeal is to support the filming cost of 40+ interfaith sites associated with Guru Nanak's travels across Pakistan. It will take 60 days to complete this phase.
After filming in Pakistan, the project will dedicate its attention to filming the narrative in the remaining 8 countries. This process will take an additional 10 months. The post-processing will take 12 months. Currently, we plan to release the documentary in November 2020.
Amardeep Singh, from Singapore, is leading this project. He has a proven track record of developing unique and monumental works. Most noteworthy are Amardeep's two books entitled 'LOST HERITAGE The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan' and 'THE QUEST CONTINUES: LOST HERITAGE The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan', in which he has explored the remnants of the Sikh legacy in 126 cities and villages in Pakistan, including many places where the community has had no access for seven decades. Amardeep has also produced two visual film documentaries 'PEERING SOUL' and 'PEERING WARRIOR', which present his field explorations across Pakistan.
