Syria's first ever official selection for the Foreign Language category for the upcoming 90th Academy Awards

 

The immensely valuable footage of the film was shot under siege and smuggled out of the country.

 

"Little Gandhi"  was chosen to represent Syria by a committee of Syrian artists living in exile and, in a rare move, accepted as such by the Academy. 

 

The movie has been selected to screen for members of Congress, the United Nations, the Canadian Parliament and is endorsed by Amnesty International.

 

"It is a profoundly moving and disturbing film that was produced in extraordinary difficult and dangerous circumstances." -- Ian Black (The Guardian)

LITTLE GANDHI

Syria's first ever official selection for the Foreign Language category

for the upcoming 90th Academy Awards®

 

The immensely valuable footage of the film was shot under siege and smuggled out of the country. 

This feature documentary follows the life of iconic Syrian peace activist Ghiyath Matar, 

who became internationally known as "Little Gandhi" for his initiative of facing down violent 

government security forces with flowers and bottles of water, inspiring

millions of people worldwide. 

 

Matar's brutal torture and death at the age of 26 outraged the international community 

and erupted into one of the most violent crisis in modern history.

 

The film was made to build a better understanding of what the Syrian Revolution is all about 

and what it stands for. To unveil the truth about the Syrian heroes who first initiated a movement 

for societal change several years before the Arab Spring. To shed light on these brave activists 

who in their own words were inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. To remind the world of lives sacrificed in order to keep the Syrian movement a peaceful uprising 

in spite of the unprecedented violence by the Syrian regime. 

 

Through "Little Gandhi", the filmmaker 

strives to share with the public the lost truth of the Syrian uprising.

 

"Little Gandhi"  was chosen to represent Syria by a committee of Syrian artists living in exile and, in a rare move, accepted as such by the Academy. 

 

"A remarkable and vitally important film."

Amnesty International 

 

"Sam Kadi's work is as heroic as the protagonists of his film. The feeling that you get...is the strong need to immediately share this story..."

The European Independent Film Festival 

 

"It is a profoundly moving and disturbing film that was produced in extraordinary difficult and dangerous circumstances."

Ian Black (The Guardian)

"Little Gandhi is a great example of the power of film..."

France 24 TV (Encore)
