The Frontier Gandhi: Badshah Khan, A Torch For Peace

Sunday, Jun 14th 5:00pm


This dramatic documentary tells the extraordinary tale of Muslim peacemaker Badshah Khan, a reformer who helped shape India's modern political, social and spiritual landscape.

Shot in India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, this eye-opening film includes rare historical footage, remarkably candid interviews from world leaders, and a score by world music pioneer David Amram. This film is a co-production of the U.S. and Canada.

In English, Urdu, Dari, Pashto, and Hindi with English subtitles.
