Ship of Theseus (Gandhi, 2012): Barbican Cinema, 7.30pm

To celebrate 100 years of the Critics’ Circle, the oldest organisation of its kind in the world, the Barbican are screening the series The Film That Changed My Life. Tonight's movie is introduced by Evening Standard film critic Derek Malcolm.

This epic movie from India examines questions of identity, justice, beauty and death by exploring the stories of three conflicting characters. A photographer grapples with the loss of her perceived brilliance following an operation; a monk faces a dilemma, choosing between principle and death; and a stockbroker follows the path of a stolen kidney. An assured and often astounding debut feature from Anand Gandhi, this is a delicately poetic film from a director to watch.

Here is the trailer.
