An Insignificant Man

Vinay Shukla and Khushboo Ranka / India / 2016 / 95 minutes / Hindi with English subtitles / Documentary

“A masterful example of the art of documentary.”
THE UPCOMING

Commonly referred to as ‘the Bernie Sanders of India’, former bureaucrat Arvind Kejriwal achieved the impossible in 2013. Placing human rights issues such as corruption, sanitation and electricity prices at the heart of his policy platform, this political nobody was swept to astounding success in his campaign to be Chief Minister of Delhi as head of the Common Man’s Party. Filmmakers Ranka and Shukla spent a year with Arvind Kejriwal to produce this incisive documentary that captures the aspiring ascent of this humble figure. An Insignificant Man introduces us to a radically different politician, whose victory is all the more significant when set against the backdrop of our contemporary global political climate.
