Director: David R Gray | Producer: David R Gray
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: Canada
This HD documentary film tells the unknown story of ten Sikh men who enlisted in the Canadian Army in World War One. All were volunteers who fought for a country that denied them the basic rights of citizenship. The film follows the men through enlistment, training, and transport to France by troopship. It features the struggles these Sikh soldiers faced and the battles they fought. The injured soldiers are followed back to Canada and their return to civilian life. Images of one soldier’s Canadian war grave and his surviving war medal bring a personal touch. The film ends with a visit to the European graves of two Canadian Sikhs who were killed in action.
