GANDHI: A Laser Journey is based on the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist, who employed nonviolent resistance to fight against racial discrimination in South Africa and led the successful campaign for India's independence from British Rule. When the British left India dividing it into two nations, religious violence broke out and Gandhi was assassinated. His spirit lives on through his messages of nonviolence, unity and harmony and in turn inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. A creation of award-winning laserist Manick Sorcar, the one-hour extravaganza comprises laser animation, 3-D visual space effects and live action in the beginning.
Net proceeds from GANDHI: A Laser Journey will support the Arts Experiences Scholarship at UCCS.
