Life of Mahatma Gandhi 1869-1948

Posted on July 22, 2007. Filed under: Documentaries, Educational |

This is a 5 hrs. 10 min. documentary biography of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, known famously as Mahatma. All events and principles of Gandhi’s life and thought are viewed as integrated parts of his truth-intoxicated life depicting permanent and universal values. The purpose of the film is to let know the present and the future generations “that such a man as Gandhi in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”, to acquaint them with his life and work and to spread his message of peace and universal brotherhood to the war-weary and fear-stricken world.

The film brings together a mass of visual record not only of 78-year life of Gandhi but also of an important period of India’s history. The aim of the film being education and not entertainment, there is no attempt at dramatization of those exciting times. The story is told with an eye to truthful documentation of the main events within the limits of available documentary visual material.
