Someone wrote about me:
When Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on January 30, 1948, he was already a legend. He was born as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi 1869 in Gujarat/India. He showed the world that social and political changes can be achieved not only through violence and terror, but also through love and compassion.
The tradition of nonviolence (ahimsa) plays an important role in the Indian culture - and its religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Tolerance for other religions, and a vegetarian diet forms an integral part of their lives. Therefore, Gandhi’s love of truth and his commitment to nonviolence are expressions of ancient traditions on the Indian sub-continent. Predominantly, Gandhi tried to realize and eradicate his own shortcomings on his path to self-transformation. He tried to meet all living beings and creations of nature with great respect and humility. He argued and fought for his convictions and aims using nonviolent means, and was always ready to compromise. Gandhi lead India from colonial dependency into political independence. He not only achieved political rights for his countrymen, but fought also for social and economic equality. Read more

Synopsis: "MID SHOT- an experiment with truth is about the travails of a director, Ram Bhardwaj who tries to unravel the assassination of his ideal, Mahatma Gandhi. He starts making a film called G2 which explores the Gandhi- Godse ideological divide. The film, while still in the making, to the director's dismay, becomes a subject of controversy and the distorted projection of it even leads to communal riots. Meanwhile, pressure mounts on the director by vested interests to ideologically slant the film. How the movie on Gandhi then becomes an experiment with truth in his own life and makes him search for answers in his inner self, is what the movie is all about.
