Sikh Youth in Australia is a special TV documentary about Sikh youth in Australia, presenting Sikh religion, values and culture, history of Sikh migration and the many contributions of generations of Sikhs in Australia. Sikhs first arrived in Australia in the 1830s and have since played a significant role as brave warriors, successful farmers, sports-persons, professionals, artists and in many others fields.

By championing inspiring young Sikhs, this documentary will provide positive role-models for all Australian youth. It will highlight the importance of sharing, community, inclusiveness and oneness of all humankind.

Directed and produced by Ana Tiwary, this documentary will be engaging, authentic and entertaining. Ana is passionate about bringing diverse stories to our screens and invites you to be part of this exciting project and help bring it to life!
