DAVIS—View Nicole Ranganath’s documentary in which California’s South Asian Punjabi women share their extraordinary life stories over the last century in dramatic eyewitness accounts and rare archival footage. Pioneer women describe their extensive contributions to peach farming and to the revival of the religious and cultural life of the Punjabi community in the Central Valley. Younger women try to balance their professional ambitions with their family duties, culture and faith.

In English and Punjabi with English subtitles.

The screening is paired with HALFWAY HOME, Steve Arounsack’s documentary which takes us through the vibrant arts scene in the Asian American community of the Central Valley.

The screenings are followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and artists.

This project is supported by a Humanities for All Project Grant.
