Followed by panel discussion
Dubbed the ”Bernie Sanders of India”, Arvind Kejriwal shook up the the status quo of the Indian political system with his Aam Aadmi Party (Common Man’s Party) in the last national election. This revolutionary shift in India’s mainstream political establishment is exposed in this gripping and unwavering doc.
Supported by the Sundance Film Institute and official selection at the Toronto Film Festival, this insightful political thriller is an on-the-ground look into the political system of the largest democracy in the world, a country with 29 official languages and 1.3 billion people. Directors Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla train their lens on inequality, corruption, and the power of elites, to highlight the democratic principles at stake in India and around the world. Fittingly enough, the film has recently been in a censorship controversy in India.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion to help navigate the complex political terrain of India, and to bring a global context to discussions of democracy and free speech.
