Daljit Ami, a Punjab-born journalist and documentary filmmaker is visiting Finland, and will screen two of his films at the University of Jyväskylä. Not Every Time (2006, 59 min) documents a mass movement against patriarchal gender roles in society after a rape incident that shook Punjab in 1997, and sparked a mass movement against patriarchal gender roles in the society. Seva (2015, 27 min.) focuses on the protection of the literary cultural heritage of the Sikhs, which is a demanding task in a culture where burning old books is still a common tradition.

There will be a Q & A sesssion after the screening of each film.
