Toronto International Film Festival has announced their selection for this year’s edition of TIFF Docs. Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla’s documentary, An Insignificant Man, which captures the rise of Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party, will have its premiere at the fest.

The 100-minute film has been produced by filmmaker Anand Gandhi. The film was earlier titled Proposition for a Revolution.

Here’s the official synopsis –

At the heart of An Insignificant Man is the most polarising man in India today – Arvind Kejriwal. The film is an insider’s view into Arvind Kejriwal’s brand of politics which has been labelled selfish, dangerous, anarchic & yet revolutionary. Shaking the country’s most powerful political establishments with basic public issues like water, electricity, and graft, Kejriwal has emerged as the leader of the newest political force in India – the Common Man’s Party.

With never-before-seen footage, the film gives viewers a unique insight into a fledgling political party’s battle between survival and extinction in the largest democracy in the world. Capturing moments of triumph and despair, the film is a moving cinematic journey through the narrow lanes of Delhi’s shantytowns to corridors of political power.

Anand Gandhi’s much accalimed film Ship Of Theseus is going to release this friday. Thanks to Kiran Rao and UTV, the film is getting much deserved space in mainstream media. If you have read about Gandhi’s short films in those interviews and still haven’t seen them, we are embedding two of his shorts here. The video quality is not great but do watch both the shorts.

continuumSynopsis – This film narrates simple enjoyable stories from everyday life that explore the continuum of life and death, of love and paranoia, of trade and value, of need and invention, of hunger and enlightenment. The five moments of its childlike innocence branch out into a more intricate gamut of an urban scape, culminating into a space where the stories no longer exist as singular threads in their own vacuum but come across and play with each other to form a larger fabric of life.
