Synopsis

As a lawyer, Mahatma Gandhi had fought for the rights of the poor. After spending time in Britain as well as South Africa - where he encouraged the act of peaceful protest - Gandhi returned to India to fight for his fellow countrymen. Gandhi's effective, non-violent actions highlighted issues such as women's rights, "untouchability" and Indian independence from British rule - inspiring other civil rights leaders, including America's Martin Luther King. Actor Ben Kingsley won worldwide praise and a Best Actor Oscar for his moving portrayal of India's national hero.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
