DESCRIPTION:

Presented by Beyond Borders International Festival.

Marking 70 years since the partition of India, this year’s Beyond Borders International Festival’s focus on the Indian sub-continent includes the screening of three films that explore the impact of this momentous event in history, and its reverberations today.

This acclaimed biographical drama explores the life of Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi, the Indian leader who stood against British rule of his country. Dedicated to non-violent resistance, Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) is initially dismissed by officials, including the influential Lord Irwin (John Gielgud), but over time his cause gains international renown, and his gatherings of passive protest move India towards independence. Directed by Richard Attenborough.
