Documentary Film

Documentary Film: Not a Feather, But a Dot

Thursday June 6, 2013
7:00 PM
Join us for a screening of Not a Feather, But a Dot, a 60-minute documentary film that examines the history, perceptions and evolution of the Indian-American community.

The film begins by identifying and deconstructing the existing stereotypes surrounding the community, then showing a side of the South Asian community not often seen in the mainstream. Finally, the film offers a different experiential model beyond the “melting pot” theory of immigrant experience in the United States of America.

Maxine Fisher noted that “Nothing about Indian women seems to arouse more curiosity... than the red circle of powder they wear in the center of the forehead.” The film begins with the ubiquitous symbol and explores the presence and journey of Hindus in the United States. Indian-Americans have splintered in to many different walks of life, with incredible success and great stories to tell also. From government, to excellent artistry, to positions in government, Not a feather, But a Dot will bring these unheard stories to life.

“While the story of ignorance among different stereotype groups is the same for many, Prasad presents the Indian-American view in a way both informative and friendly... A great discussion starter on the subjects of prejudice and cultural differences.”

- Ellen Druda, Library Journal

“Educational for people of non-Indian background, it brought attention to the stereotypes that exist and how they are changing... the film would find really welcoming appreciative audiences in high school, college campuses, community centers and public libraries.”

-Susan Conlon, Princeton Library

About the filmmaker: Teju Prasad is an independent filmmaker, whose primary interest lies in documentary and short form storytelling. He’s been involved in documentary and short films since 2004, and Not a Feather, But a Dot is his second documentary film.
