On the film’s 40th anniversary LIFF presents and re-examines the epic movie that brought Indian leader Gandhi to the world’s attention in the 1980s and allegedly helped inspire the non-violent Czech Velvet Revolution. Richard Attenbourough’s labour of love took many years to realise, in part due to its gigantic, lavish scenarios and stellar cast. Gujarati-British actor Sir Ben Kingsley gives an Oscar®-winning performance as the Mahatma.
