AHIMSA is the sequel to my first documentary film, ANICCA. This time it's not about change, but about peace.
I started working on the film in January 2022. When the situation in Ukraine escalated two months later, a few people approached me saying what a coincidence it was that I'm making a film about peace. I must have anticipated it, they said. The truth, however, has nothing to do with clairvoyance or coincidence. The reason I wanted to make a film about peace is because, for as long as I can remember, there's always been some armed conflict going on somewhere in the world. And in my everyday life, I also encounter many moments that aren't peaceful at all. So... If I'm not fully peaceful - how can I expect a peaceful world?
AHIMSA is available in three subtitled language versions. For free, on youtube.
If you've enjoyed watching AHIMSA - EMBRACING PEACE, please consider supporting me as an independent filmmaker. Camera and sound, pre-production and interviews, translating and editing - I eat a lot of good chocolate when making films, and good chocolate is expensive!
