Sept. 30: Film- The Frontier Gandhi: Badshah Khan, A Torch for Peace

Sponsored by “IF”:  Thursday, September 30, 8PM at the Del Mar Theater in downtown Santa Cruz. IF will be presenting the West Coast premiere of the critically acclaimed documentary film, The Frontier Gandhi: Badshah Khan, A Torch for Peace. A close friend and collaborator of Mahatma Gandhi, Badshah Khan stood 6-foot-6 and seemed quite fearsome. Yet the two men were so close they sometimes shared reading glasses, inspiring jokes about their “shared vision.”  Both received multiple nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize, yet Khan is almost unknown outside of Afghanistan, India and Pakistan while Gandhi is revered the world over.

The film’s director, Teri C. McLuhan (daughter of Marshall McLuhan) will be present for a dialogue with the audience after the film screening. Tickets are $15; group rates begin at $12 for groups of 5 or more.

Dinner-and-movie tickets are $45 per person and $75 per couple. Dinner (6:15 – 7:30 p.m.) will be hosted by Khyber Pass restaurant, 810 Pacific Street, Santa Cruz (only about one block from the Theatre)
