Award winning director Lisa Sabina Harney is screening her drama documentary Satyagraha-Truth Force in the Capital.

Presented by Goddess Films in association with Harvard Club Of India this drama documentary tells the story of a group of humble Indian saints who believe the sanctity of their holy river - The Ganges - is being destroyed by corruption and a powerful mining lobby.

They have been threatened, beaten, jailed and bribed. Two have died. Both were murdered, or so they believe. Satyagraha - Truth Force follows the Satyagraha or hunger strike of Swami Shivanand as he fights with his life to protect the river and attempts to find justice for his disciple whom he believes was poisoned.

Harney has spent 15 years working intensively as a writer, producer and director of award winning documentaries and docu-drama. She is the recipient of a Golden Eagle and Hugo Award and has been interviewed and published by the Guerrilla Filmmakers guide as an expert in dramatized documentary.

The 91-minute movie will be screened in presence of Yogesh J Karan, High Commissioner, Republic of Fiji and will be followed by a discussion about the same.
