GANDHI - Monday Night Movie

Event Description

GANDHI is a remarkable experience, a sweeping and breathtaking epic.

It is the sort of rare epic film that spans the decades, that uses the proverbial cast of thousands, and yet follows a human thread from beginning to end: GANDHI is no more overwhelmed by the scope of its production than was Gandhi overwhelmed by all the glory of the British Empire.

Gandhi was not a ruler of nations, nor did he have scientific gifts. Yet this small modest man did what others before him could not. He led an entire country to freedom - he gave his people hope.

Gandhi is nonviolent but firm. He is sure where the right lies in every situation, and he will uphold it in total disregard for the possible consequences to himself.

He realises that Indians have been made into second-class citizens in their own country, and he begins a program of civil disobedience that is at first ignored by the British, then scorned, and finally, reluctantly, dealt with, sometimes by subterfuge, sometimes by brutality.

Through it all, Gandhi maintains a certain detachment; he is convinced he is right, convinced that violence is not an answer, convinced that sheer moral example can free his nation as it did.

His goal was freedom. His strategy was peace. His weapon was humanity.

His movement did indeed liberate India, in one of the greatest political and economic victories of all time, achieved through nonviolent principles.

It reminds us that we are, after all, human, and thus capable of the most extraordinary and wonderful achievements, simply through the use of our imagination, our will, and our sense of right.

One of the most inspiring films in history.
