This short documentary throws light on racism against the Sikh community in USA. Post 9/11, Sikhs were subjected to hate crimes simply because of their appearance, but their way of dealing with this hate that stems from ignorance, is an amusing one - through peace, love and acceptance.
Filmed in New York, it includes a personal account of Vishavjit Singh as he puts into perspective what it feels like to live as a Sikh in America.
Turban Fever screened at the Harvard Art Museums in 2018.
