“Remarkable Journey”

Mar 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - Apr 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

The Cary Theater will showcase a locally produced documentary film, “Remarkable Journey,” which chronicles the migration of Asian Indians to North Carolina. The one-hour film premieres in Wake County at The Cary on March 30 at 7 p.m., with additional screenings on April 1 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and April 6 at 2 p.m. Tickets to all screenings are free.

Through lively first-person stories, the film explores the pioneer generation of Indian immigrants to North Carolina, as the world’s oldest and largest democracies met here in the midst of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and the years following. These energetic newcomers helped fuel the expansion of opportunities in science and business across the Research Triangle and around the state, as they met the challenge of passing the “essence of India” on to their children. The documentary is produced by Durham resident, Dr. Steven Channing, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker.

“Remarkable Journey portrays the deep multiculturalism that has enabled Indian culture to thrive in North Carolina,” said Joy Ennis, operations and program supervisor for The Cary Theater. “The film celebrates our region’s diversity and features an entertaining narrative about how the Indian community has grown in our state and has survived around the globe for the past 5,000 years.”

The documentary highlights the story of Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jains, Christians, Jews and others living and working together through respect and determination. Remarkable Journey is aimed for eventual public broadcast as well as distribution with a teaching toolkit to schools across the state. After its screenings in Cary, the film will available to view in homes, temples, mosques and churches, and shared with families in India.
