BEHIND THE BHANGRA BOYS
DIRECTED BY: NANCE ACKERMAN
Starring: Maritime Bhangra Group
CANADA | DOCUMENTARY | ENGLISH | 2019 | 53 MINS
A testament to the power of arts, culture, community, and activism, director Nance Ackerman follows five young Sikh immigrants of the Maritime Bhangra Group, and peers beyond their dance and viral videos as they dance to fundraise for social causes and organizations. Join their pursuit of “joyful activism” as they seek connections with First Nations communities, raise awareness for Climate Change, and challenge us to consider how dance can change our perceptions of identity and social responsibility.
Immediately following behind the Bhangra Boys is a special performance by
