Over the last few years the world saw a wave of spontaneous peoples’ movements, from Arab Springs to the Occupy Movement to India’s very own anti-corruption Janlokpal movement, where people came out on the streets in large numbers asking for stronger anti-corruption laws. What is unique in the Indian story is that some of the protesters decided to form a political party and fight state-wide elections in New Delhi. This is the story of the Aam Aadmi Party or the Common Man’s Party.


Proposition for a Revolution aims to chronicle the journey of the party from its formation in December 2012 to the Delhi state elections in December 2013.

Filmmakers’ Appeal

When we began shooting, nobody knew what lay in the future. Least of all, us. Today, we feel, we have a film that is a critical document, observing not just the evolution of a political party, but the gradual shift that we are beginning to witness in our political discourse.


In the last year, we have been helped by friends who moved cities and jobs to work on this film and by colleagues who brought in their own resources.


We managed to win the prestigious IDFA Bertha Grant for documentaries and our pitch recently won two prizes at DocEdge. We now come to you.
