The World Needs Him Now More Than Ever

This inspiring, new film shows the Master of Nonviolence at the end of his life, on the brink of attaining his lifelong goal of freedom from the British, but with his heart breaking by the partition of India and the terrible communal violence that is killing untold thousands. Having led masses in nonviolent marches, Gandhi now walks alone for unity and peace.

GANDHI’S GIFT reveals inspiring details about his life that were known only by scholars before now. Historians and witnesses who actually grew up in the Mahatma’s presence tell this story along with featured commentary from Dr. Rajmohan Gandhi who is both an historian and grandson with vivid memories of his grandfather’s final days.

His timeless story is as timely as ever, introducing a 21st Century Gandhi with a message of nonviolence and interfaith harmony more important now than even when he walked the Earth. Filmed on location in India, South Africa and the UK at all of the important sites in Gandhi’s life.
