Dhun Mein Dhyan: Meditations and Music in Guru Granth Sahib by Meera Dewan

Moving back and forth in time, the Film unfolds the over 500-year-long journey of the Sikh Holy Book, the Guru Granth Sahib. The storytellers are music practitioners who recite its verse for the community and keep alive both its philosophy and musicality. When the believers bow to the Granth, it is to knowledge they bow. When they sing to it, it sings right back to them.
