The Argumentative Indian. The life of Nobel laureate Amartya Sen

After receiving the Nobel Prize in economics in 1998, Amartya Sen's name resonated around the world as one of the most important minds in his field as well as in contemporary philosophy. 

This informative documentary makes his career visible and gives us clues about his intellectual references and his vision of the world, having been raised in the periphery that embodies the universe of the Indian subcontinent.
