Tying the Knot - BBC3 short film #Sikh

I was surprised to discover this short film on the BBC THREE youtube channel but I'm glad I did. It touches upon a myriad of subjects. It's worth watching, monologue pieces are hit and miss but I feel this one is strong. 

It's great to see the BBC actually create some Sikh related content, hopefully BBC THREE can help nurture the next generation of filmmakers.

This short film has been written by Rena Dipti Annobil and stars Mawaan Rizwan as Ronnie, a man struggling to prepare for his wedding day. Over the course of five minutes it touches on a variety of topics related to the Sikh diaspora.

It's part of a new BBC venture called 'The Break',  between BBC Taster, BBC Writersroom and BBC Drama Production that has seen five original short dramas written by up-and-coming writing talent from across the UK. Each short consists of a standalone, contemporary individual monologue, the others are really inventive and worth checking out too.
