An Insignificant Man

Institute History

  • 2015 Sundance Documentary Film Grant


What happens when an insider challenges corruption in the world’s largest democracy? An Insignificant Man tells the extraordinary story of the 2013 New Delhi elections, which catapulted bureaucrat-turned-activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal into power within a year of forming a new anti-corruption political party. A ground-level verite portrait depicting the transformation of a people's movement into a political party, the film follows Arvind Kejriwal with unprecedented access as he takes on the oldest political party in India–The Congress Party.
