Compass - Sikhing Woopi
The Sikhs are a peace loving people whose religion also recommends studying self-defence and keeping fit so that they might be prepared to fight injustice if necessary. Every year Australia’s Sikh community holds its own mini-Olympics. Teams from Australia and overseas converge for three days of sport (including turban tying and kabaddi – Sikh team wrestling) dancing, singing and eating.
In 2009 the Sikh Games are in the northern NSW seaside town of Woolgoolga – ‘Woopi’ to the locals. Compass follows a local family through the big event for an intimate portrait of contemporary Sikh faith and culture.
