VICE To Release The Arvind Kejriwal Documentary That Was Banned By Indian Censors

This documentary has been in the news since last year. The makers of ‘An Insignificant Man’ has been trying to fight against Censor Board to just obtain a certification. The documentary which is based on Arvind Kejriwal was asked to get a no-objection certificate from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Two filmmakers from Mumbai, Khusboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla, had sent their documentary, An Insignificant Man, to the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and had continued to fight against the verdict. They finally got a U/A certificate by the censor board on instructions from the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT).

The documentary shows the anti-corruption protests of which Anna Hazare was the face and which resulted in the birth of the Aam Aadmi Party, the NDA sweeping to power at the Centre, and Kejriwal becoming the Delhi CM with a thumping majority.

The documentary premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and has since been screened at 40 festivals across the world.

 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.

The 100-minute film has been distilled from 400 hours of behind-the-scenes footage shot over a course of two years.

Today, VICE, an international media has taken the rights for the movie and have decided to telecast it online! This documentary is going to be released in November 2017.

Following the announcement, Twitter couldn’t stop themselves to talk about it.
