Gandhi - Video Biography

This is an abridged version of a lengthy documentary on the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948), more commonly known as “Mahatma Gandhi.”

According to its producers:

The film brings together a mass of visual record not only of the 78-year life of Gandhi but also of an important period of India's history ...The story is told with an eye to truthful documentation of the main events within the limits of available documentary visual material.

The makers of this production chose to focus on the life of Gandhi as a leader of a movement.  It says little about his family, particularly his wife.

The film, which is linked here via YouTube, runs 2 hours and 15 minutes. It is approximately half the length of the original, unabridged version.
