Private Project


One hundred and fifty years after the birth of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, one of the world's most iconic social-political activists, this short film looks at the role he played in freeing India from British rule with his spiritual ideas of non-violent protest. Using existing and recently surfaced film and audio recordings along with a soundtrack of music and poetic narration, the film transports us into a reverie of the great man as we celebrate a sesquicentenary since his birth.

Director Statement

I was asked by a film executive to make a short film about Gandhi and set about building a kaleidoscopic conjuration of the great man which was enlightening and fulfilling at the same time and turned out to be a most enjoyable experience.
