Directed by two young, independent filmmakers, ‘An Insignificant Man’ is a documentary that follows Arvind Kejriwal, an activist and newcomer to Indian politics, who decided to form a new political party to serve the common man and combat corruption. In a major 2013 election, he challenged the country’s two major political parties with revolutionary, grassroots strategies—and directors Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla followed the campaign from the inside, capturing exclusive, intimate footage of what went down.

On this episode of ‘VICE Talks Film,’ we met up with Ranka and Shukla to talk about how they secured unprecedented access to Kejriwal, what it took to make their film, and how it was received across the globe.
