Film screening: The Making of the Mahatma


A compelling narrative tells the story of Mohandas Gandhi's journey from a young London lawyer to the symbol of a nation and his attempts to end discrimination against the Indians in South Africa. During his 20 years in South Africa, Gandhi tested and practiced his concept of nonviolent protest through passive resistance, civil disobedience and dedication to the truth.

The film portrays the difficulties and sacrifices that the Gandhi family endured and presents the man as a human being with real problems as it charts the progress and experiences that would transform him into the figure who later became so important in India's fight for independence.
