India’s Daughter (2015)
Directed by Leslee Udwin
Not Rated, 62 minutes
Hindi with English subtitles
In 2012, a medical student was the victim of a brutal gang rape on a Delhi bus and later died from her injuries. The tragic event made international headlines and ignited protests by women in India and around the world. Working with an all Indian crew, Leslee Udwin traveled to Delhi to interview with the rapists and defense attorney, none of whom express remorse. An impassioned plea for change, India’s Daughter explores the compelling human stories behind the incident and the political ramifications throughout India.
Udwin is scheduled to appear in person to introduce the film and participate in a Q&A session. This event is part of the Nanovic Institute European Film Series, Forms of Realism.
