India’s Daughter is the powerful story of the brutal gang rape on a Delhi bus of a 23-year-old medical student, who later died from her injuries. In 2012, it made international headlines and ignited protests by women in India and around the world. India’s government banned the film while the BBC moved their planned broadcast up by days and ignited a new controversy.
BAFTA-winning filmmaker Leslee Udwin, herself a victim of rape, went to India inspired by the protests against sexual assault. With an all-Indian crew, Udwin captured exclusive, first-time-on-camera interviews with the rapists and defense attorney – none of whom express remorse. The defense attorney goes even further, stating that “immodest” women deserve what happens to them.
An impassioned plea for change, India’s Daughter pays tribute to a remarkable and inspiring young woman, and explores the compelling human stories behind the incident and the political ramifications throughout India.
This film contains strong disturbing content related to violent rape and murder.
