The documentary "Between the book and the sword" portrays the Sikh community in the city of Barcelona and its surroundings, showing the contrast between the bustle and volatility of the city and a solid community with permanent social and cultural structures. Through the stories of some of its members, their flavors and the striking colors that fill the screen, we capture the intimacy of private space, the space of worship and prayer, and finally the occupation of public space. This film does not intend to show the totality of the Sikh community, but rather fragments of lived scenes that transport the viewer into an ethnographic experience.
