LONDON, Dec. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dubai film festival saw the release of the teaser of the epic film 'Solar Eclipse - Depth of Darkness', based on true events that led to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi on 30th January, 1948. The feature draws a parallel between the assassinations of President Abraham Lincoln and Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi was a living legend, famous of his pioneering work in promoting non-violent resistance through awakening of the masses, subsequently taken up in the struggle of world freedom by leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr., and Nelson Mandela. Sir Richard Attenborough's epic film Gandhi, released in 1982, was nominated for 11 Oscars, winning 8.
Solar Eclipse, shot in exotic locations in Sri Lanka, Dubai, London and India, is set in the period immediately after world war II, which led to the independence and partition of India on sectarian grounds, leading to the worst communal strife ever recorded in modern history. Over 2 million people died in less than two months of communal murder, rapes, kidnapping and mass looting, across India and the newly formed Pakistan.
Starring well-known Hollywood, British and Bollywood stars such as Stephen Lang, Luke Pasqualino, Om Puri, Bobbie Phillips and British 'Bad boy' Vinnie Jones, the feature promises to be both engaging and entertaining.
The teaser of the film www.facebook.com/solareclipsemovie has over 4 million views in less that three weeks across the globe, generating passions across the world of cinema goers and history lovers alike.
