DENVER, Colorado: As the world is celebrating  Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, Manick Sorcar, the veteran award-winning laserist, gets ready to offer his latest creation “Gandhi: A Laser Journey”, an hour-long documentary on the life of the Father of the Nation.

At the invitation of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), the documentary is going to be premiered at the prestigious Ent Center for the Arts, Colorado Springs, October 19, 2019, at 6 p.m. Proceeds from the event will benefit the UCCS Arts Experiences Scholarships.

“It is a labor of love for over two years,” Sorcar told India Post. “It is my humble way to celebrate the 150thbirth anniversary of the great man whose message on non-violence, religious harmony and unity is more appropriate now than ever!”

The inspiration for the documentary came from the huge success of his previous production “Swamiji”, a laser documentary on the life of Swami Vivekananda, the 19th century itinerant monk, that received rave reviews and was displayed in dozens of cities across the USA and India. In India, it was organized by the Ramakrishna Mission in collaboration with the cultural division of the government of India, two years in a row. It was also telecast by the ABP news channel.

“At one hour and five minutes running length, the Gandhi documentary is probably the longest laser show ever made on a personality,” said Sorcar, “but the real challenge was to capsule his life’s journey in one hour, particularly of the man who is regarded in India as the Father of the Nation, and to the world, one of the greatest men of the century.”

The show consists of two parts. The first part is the “Salt March” where a brief live acting is done by children in front of a laser animated sea in the background, and the second part is a non-stop,one-hour laser journey of Gandhi’s entire life, where the story restarts from chapter one.

Manick Sorcar, who lives in Denver, Colorado, is the son of  the legendary magician P.C. Sorcar.
