In Memory of Friends
Description: This is a highly ironic documentary of the life and legacy of Bhagat Singh, a Sikh independence activist who died at the hands of the British in 1932 at age 23. It is ironic, because wildly opposed factions within India claim him as their own, and it is clear that the man himself was disposed to moderation more than anything else. The by-now antisocialist Indian government claims him as an exemplary patriot, ignoring his other views. Socialists take him as a die-hard revolutionary of their stripe, and Sikh militants also claim him as their own.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
