Little gandhi

unnamed (2).png


Little Gandhi tells the heart-wrenching and tragic tale of iconic Syrian peace activist Ghiyath Matar. The story of Matar, dubbed “Little Gandhi” for his strict code of non-violent protest, takes audiences through the Syrian people’s peaceful pursuit of freedom and democracy only to be met with live ammunition from the Syrian regime. While the documentary follows the journey of a young man dedicated to peaceful change, and the international attention his story received, it also reflects the plight of all Syrians in their long fight for freedom.
