Cinematheque: India's Daughter

Wednesday, September 2, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Jonsson Performance Hall
Admission: Free
Season: 2015-16

Cosponsored by Meteor Theater, each evening features a different independent film followed by a short question and answer session with members of the film industry.

India’s Daughter is a documentary about the Delhi gang rape, an incident that occurred on December 16, 2012 in South Delhi.

Jyoti Singh, a 23 year old medical student, was gang raped by six men. The rape and her subsequent death sparked unprecedented protests and riots throughout India. The event received widespread media coverage leading to criticism of the Indian government for not providing enough protection to women. The film examines the mindsets of the men who committed the rape via exclusive interviews and sets these mindsets against a vast exploration of the patriarchal society and culture of India. The film is ultimately optimistic and serves as an impassioned plea for change in India.
