Ahimsa Gandhi: The Power of the Powerless  The documentary feature is produced and directed by the team that did the Emmy nominated film, THE JOURNALIST AND THE JIHADI. On October 2, 2019, the world commemorated the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, inspiring award-winning filmmaker, Ramesh Sharma, to revisit the icon’s life and philosophy that still endures today. Shot in India, South Africa, the U.S. and Europe, the film tracks the influence of Gandhi’s non-violence approach on world leaders from Martin Luther King Jr. to the late Congressman John Lewis, Lech Walesa, Nelson Mandela, Vaclav Havel and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  International musicians U2 and AR Rahman contributed to the title track.  With new voices joining the global dialogue about injustice and systemic racism and the resurgence of nationalism in cities like Hong Kong, the documentary has been hailed as a timely reminder about non-violence movement.
