Film Screening | The World Before Her

12 January 2016 


The film follows the aspirations of two young women in India and explores the complex and conflicting environments that shape their upbringing, values, and outlook on life. Moving between two extremes - the intimate verite drama of the Miss India pageant's rigorous beauty "bootcamp" and the intense regime of a militant Hindu fundamentalist camp for young girls, 'The World Before Her' delivers a provocative portrait of India and its current cultural conflicts during a key transitional era in the country's modern history.
