'A Winter that Burned Delhi: Silent Screams and Broken Promises of 1984' is a documentary film shot and directed by Rahul Milind, an undergraduate from Krea University. Taking an ethnographic approach, it looks into the tumultuous events of 1984 - Operation Blue Star in Punjab and the subsequent Anti-Sikh riots in Delhi; and how these events have gone on to shape the reality of being Sikh in India for decades. Looking at how these events are remembered today in memory, especially by those who have not lived the experience first-hand and have only heard stories about it growing up - the post-1984 younger generations, and their understanding and perception of not just the same, but also the larger Sikh identity, the film interlinks themes such as state violence against minorities, generational trauma, and identity formation, and was completed under the advisory of Dr. Ramachandra Guha and Dr. Prithvi Datta Chandra Sobhi.
