Sari Red
A film by Pratibha Parmar
England, 1988, 12 minutes, Color, DVD
Order No. W99344
Made in memory of Kalbinder Kaur Hayre, a young Indian woman killed in 1985 in a racist attack in England, SARI RED eloquently examines the effect of the ever-present threat of violence upon the lives of Asian women in both private and public spheres. In this moving visual poem, the title refers to red, the color of blood spilt and the red of the sari, symbolizing sensuality and intimacy between Asian women.

Also available is Bhangra Jig, a vibrant short video about how young Asian people in Scotland celebrate desire and self-pride through dance and music. (Rental $40, VHS Sale $150, Order # 97047)


    “Powerful, expressive. Gives keen insight into the often unarticulated colonial legacy of a racially arrogant society.”
