"A Dream in Doubt" Screens in New York and San Francisco

Preet Singh, a dear friend of Cafe 227, has been working for over three years to produce a one-hour documentary chronicling the aftermath of the first post-9/11 hate fatality of Balbir Singh Sodhi. The film, "A Dream in Doubt," recently premiered at one of the largest independent film festivals in the world, Slamdance, in Park City, UT. The film was recognized for a Jury prize and is currently being considered for a national PBS airing later this year.

In addition, "A Dream in Doubt" has been selected by the Film Society at Lincoln Center and IFP to screen at the famed Lincoln Center in New York City. Preet, along with the Sodhi family, will be in New York City for the screening and a Q&A afterwards.

Details: Thursday, Feb. 22, 6:30 pm, Walter Reade Theater; $10 tickets at

The film will also screen at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival on Tuesday, March 20 at 7:15 pm. Tickets will be available beginning Feb. 13 at

If you live in either of those cities, I encourage you to attend. It'll be worth your time.
