Project Update: Did You Know Series?

Ensaaf thanks you for helping us reach our goal for the Did You Know? Series project featured on Dasvandh Network. This video tutorial series will emotionally engage and familiarize the international community with the terminology relating to the abuses in Punjab. The tutorial videos will cover fake encounters, torture methods, disappearances, and secret cremations.

From 2014 to 2016, our Multimedia Director regularly traveled to Punjab and filmed 123 video interviews. Although our videography is largely complete, our timeline for preparing and producing the final videos has changed. Your donations have been held as temporarily restricted funds and earmarked for the production of these videos. We are working towards creating a Virtual Site of Conscience (VSC) where the Did You Know? Series will be a key component. The VSC will include an immersive sensory experience, data visualizations, documentary films and oral histories, a portrait gallery, an advocacy interface, a human rights archive, and a resource center. To read and support the VSC project, check out organization page.

We hope that we will have sample videos from the tutorial project to share by late 2017. By early 2017, we will have sample oral histories to share. We hope you will continue to support us as we fundraise and work toward ending impunity. We are deeply grateful for your partnership, and for assisting in the funding of the videography for this series.

Chardi Kalaa!
