‘War and Peace’ by Anand Patwardhan

Using war as a means to achieve peace has become one of the great modern world paradoxes. Anand Patwardhan, one of India’s finest documentary film makers presented this topic masterfully through his film ‘War & Peace’, now available on DVD.

Winner of multiple international film awards including the critics award at the prestigious Sydney Film Festival, War & Peace has achieved iconic status amongst students and lovers of great cinema. Filmed across India, Pakistan, Japan & the USA, War & Peace is dramatically framed by the killing of Mahatma Gandhi. Fifty years after his death memories of Gandhi seem like a mirage that never was, created by our thirst for peace and our very distance from it. So if compelling cinema is what you are looking for this weekend, pick up your copy of War & Peace from your nearest music or retail store.
