Encounters with Truth

Cover of video, 'Encounters with Truth'
							Set amidst the sights and sounds of India, with original music by Hariprasad Chaurasia, this film is a profile of Rajmohan Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. In his capacities as journalist, author and member of the Upper House of the Indian Parliament, Rajmohan's message and example confronts corruption, caste prejudice and religious intolerance. He says of his grandfather, 'his struggle has to be continued, the evils he fought have to be fought. I would like to accept that challenge'.

Screened at the Cannes and Nyon Film Festivals; Honorary Mention at the American Film and Video Festival; screened in the 'Spring Series' at the New York Museum of Modern Art. 'Rajmohan addresses some of the crucial issues that are tearing India apart: caste, class, religion and state.

He offers us analysis that is both penetrating and constructive.' News India, New York
