War and Peace

Directed by Anand Patwardhan

This epic documentary illuminates the forces which brought India and Pakistan to the brink of nuclear war. Arguing that religious fundamentalism and patriotism are in fact two sides of the same coin, Patwardhan documents with sorrow the sub-continent’s trajectory towards unabashed militarism since the murder of Mahatma Gandhi.
