"Though this documentary is about Sikhs, it has an international message on the need for understanding and tolerance," she said. "The documentary has cost me more than I had budgeted for and Sikh leaders who promised to underwrite some of the costs have not been forthcoming." Still, Vinanti is proud of her film. Besides Vinanti, the others involved in making Mistaken Identity: Sikhs in America were young host Amanda Gesine, and Philip Marshall (four-time Emmy award-winning editor). Vinanti, who is president of WLWD Inc, New York (a boutique digital television production house), took over nine months to shoot the documentary.A Columbia University film graduate, Vinanti, who has been in the US for the past 25 years, said that was why she was working hard to have it shown all over the world. It has already crossed the Atlantic into Europe and the continent and her next stop would most likely be India. "I would then be going to Singapore and possibly Malaysia," said Vinanti, who has been producing films about cultural diversity for several years.
