The Land of Ahimsa is a feature-length documentary that follows Dolly Vyas-Ahuja on her journey to veganism. Dolly narrates and produces the film alongside Bollywood actor Aryeman, who directs. The Land of Ahimsa will strive to inspire and encourage the people of India to adopt a vegan way of life by showing them how easy it is.
Veganism is steadily growing all around the world as countries are recognizing the impact on climate and health. India must rise up and position itself as a leading country in the plant-based movement and put into practice Ahimsa, which means non-violence to all living beings.
Throughout the film, we interview plant-based doctors, athletes, Animal Activists, and entrepreneurs and visit sanctuaries to illustrate the importance of Ahimsa in action in India with the hope this will resonate across the globe. We demonstrate how by rising to the true meaning of the word, we can create a non-violent world that will relieve the suffering of all living beings, improve our health and wellness, and allow us to live in a clean environment.
The film follows Dolly as she returns to her homeland after discovering the power of Ahimsa through her transition to a vegan lifestyle. She relates her experience to that of her grandfather, who was a Freedom fighter who marched alongside Gandhi to liberate India from British rule. Similarly, the film shows her strength in fighting for justice for all beings through the Animal Liberation March.
She uses her voice to expose the truth about the cruelty of the dairy industry by educating others through her presentations at various events throughout India and the US.
