An Insignificant Man: A Film by Khushboo Ranka & Vinay Shukla

A non-fiction drama chronicling the most outrageous political debut in the largest democracy in the world, ‘An Insignificant Man’ follows Arvind Kejriwal and his insurgent party as they look to shake up Indian politics while struggling to keep their own idealism alive. It gives an insider’s view into Kejriwal’s brand of politics, which has split popular opinion into two prominent factions. One labels it selfish and anarchic, while the other insists on seeing it as a major shift in the Indian political paradigm. With never-before-seen footage, the film offers a unique insight into the fledgling political party’s battle between survival and extinction in the largest democracy in the world.
