JERSEY BOY is a coming-of-age drama about Karandeep, a Sikh boy struggling with his identity in the aftermath of 9/11. Told over three stages of Karandeep’s life, the film explores the space between identity and inclusion, as he navigates his family relationships, the woman he loves, and his place in a rapidly changing America.

Written and directed by Sikh-Canadian filmmaker Jaskaran Singh, the film is the first of its kind centering on the Sikh American experience, featuring a majority Sikh cast and Sikh creatives at the helm.

“Jersey Boy is a window into figuring out my own insecurities growing up Sikh in America,” says director Jaskaran Singh. “It's something that's never been explored on screen before, and I want other Sikhs to see their experiences represented across generations and for everyone else to see that this, too, is an American story.”

HOW WILL YOU HELP US?

Filmmaking can be an expensive endeavor. These donations from Dasvandh will directly aid in our many post-production needs to help complete the film so we can showcase it to the world!

We can't thank you all enough for opening up your wallets and hearts to encourage us to create this historical project. It is truly independent in every sense of the word. It is not backed by anyone but us and the Sikh community. We carry the weight of representing our community in the most authentic way possible.

Once it's ready, we intend to take the film out and play it at schools, colleges, community centers, and even gurudwaras. Wherever our people are, we want this film to go! Beyond Sikhs, we hope it'll reach and resonate with all audiences, and hope it will be a way for people to learn about us and our stories.
