The Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) will be showcasing a film spotlight of INDIA’S DAUGHTER, directed by Leslee Udwin on February 21st at 6pm.

An amazing documentary supported by Meryl Streep and Sean Penn, won the Spirit Of Freedom Award at the 2015 Bahamas International Film Festival.

India's Daughter, director Leslee Udwin

Galleria JFK, Theater 1
Feb. 21
Time - 6pm

This documentary film pays tribute to the remarkable and inspiring short life of Jyoti Singh and documents the brutality of her gang-rape and murder in Delhi in December 2012.

It also examines the mindset of the men who committed the rape, and - perhaps most importantly - it sets these specifics against a wider in-depth exploration of the patriarchal society and culture which not only seeds but may be said even to encourage violence against women.The focus of the film's exploration is on the compelling human stories behind the incident in the context of a world in which brutality against women is so commonplace. Ultimately, the film is optimistic - the case has been a catalyst for change, and the massive public response to the incident bears witness to an attitudinal change on the horizon, which the film seeks to amplify.
