An Insignificant Man

With the Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy

Film screening and debate

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

Filmmakers Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla follow Arvind Kejriwal, "the Bernie Sanders of India," as he shakes up the world of Indian politics as the head of the Common Man’s Party. Shot over two years, the film takes us on a journey from the narrow lanes of Delhi’s slums to the corridors of political power, offering unique insight into the changing nature of political parties, in India and beyond.

An Insignificant Man (2016, 95 minutes, Hindi/English) will be followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Sebastien Brack, Senior political officer, Kofi Annan Foundation
  • Deval Desai, Post-doctoral research fellow, Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy
  • Christine Lutringer, Senior research fellow, Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy (moderator)

Entry is free, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Organised with the Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy as part of Geneva Peace Week.
