Divided we Fall: Americans in the Aftermath


SACHI, The Society for Art & Cultural Heritage of India
and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
present DIVIDED WE FALL: Americans in the Aftermath
A powerful feature-length documentary film in the aftermath of 9/11

Driven to action by the murder of a turbaned man in her community, a college student drives across America in the aftermath of 9/11 to discover stories that did not make the evening news. From the still-shocked streets of Ground Zero to the desert towns of the American West, Valarie Kaur’s inspiring journey uncovers remarkable stories of hate, violence, fear, and unspeakable loss–until she finds the heart of America halfway around the world, in the words of Balbir Sodhi’s widow. Five years in the making, Divided We Fall deftly explores race, religion, and identity in times of national crisis.
