Gavilan instructor's film a contender for PBS People's Choice Award

San Leandro, Calif. — A powerful short (and mostly silent) film about one Indian woman’s reaction to racism on the July 4 holiday is an official selection for the PBS Online Film Festival, and is a contender for the PBS People’s Choice Awards. Viewers can vote for the film online through July 31.

Arpita Kumar’s “My Dear Americans” runs only six minutes, but it potently conveys the courage of a Sikh woman who encounters a shocking act of racism in her first days as an American immigrant. Ansuya Nathan and Gugun Singh star.
