Asif Kapadia, winner of the BAFTA for Most Promising Newcomer, makes his directorial debut with this visually captivating, highly acclaimed production, from a screenplay by Asif Kapadia and Tim Miller.

A beautiful tale from India about the life of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, the man who became the Buddha. Sensitively portrayed by Himansu Rai, the young prince journeys from privilege and seclusion to awareness of the inevitability of life's suffering, renouncing his kingdom to seek enlightenment. An opulent epic made with the cooperation of the Maharajah of Jaipur and a cast of thousands, Prem Sanyas is a landmark film.
