Official Launch of Turbanology DVD

Following the success of his debut documentary "Turbanology: After 7/7" comes the sponsored DVD launch of the programme.

Turbanology has played out to rapturous audiences in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and Manchester. It has aired on BritAsia TV and the Sikh Channel, and has even been approved as an educational resource by Birmingham City Council’s Agreed Syllabus for RE website.

Now, an event to hear from the filmmaker and various dignataries about the film and the issues it covers.

About the DVD

Academics in 2008 found that simply noticing someone had a turban increased the aggressive tendencies of westerners because of the connection that has arisen between it and extremism since 9/11 and the 7/7 attacks in London.

‘Turbanology’ aims to address this misconception by delving into what the turban represents for the people that wear them. It provides insight into the history of the turban and acts as an educational resource to explore its importance for the diverse groups in society who consider it a crown.

About The Event

The Turbanology DVD will be officially launched on 30th January 2010 by the Sadh Sangat of Ramgarhia Sikh Temple Graham Street Birmingham. The event wil feature a showing of the DVD with a formal sit down dinner and have several exceptional speakers on the subject.

Tickets will cost £12.50 per person to cover teh event and free distribution of the DVD. The Management Commitee have previously launched and funded two exceptional books – Sikhs in the Diaspora, and the second one about Sikh Religion and Hair. These books are distributed free of charge to all organisations and individuals as the Commitee believe that there is not enough literature that is available to the youngsters.
