Documentary Circle, Moving Images and Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad will be screening, The World Before Her, on the occasion of Women’s March in association with Voices 4 Girls, and Sankalp - Women’s Support Alliance.
The film is a Canadian documentary film written and directed by Nisha Pahuja in 2012. This film has been labelled by critics as the most important film of the year - an accolade winning documentary that straddles two different extremes with aplomb. This film offers a glimpse into the lives of two young women. One is an aspiring middle class girl seeking the Miss India crown, and the other a fierce nationalist fighting against the influence of western culture. The Boot Camps that they attend are captured deftly and the girls realize that their two opposing worlds are not as far away from each other as they seemed, particularly when they encounter chillingly similar experiences that tell them that the freedom they seek comes with conditions and chains. It will also have a discussion with Nisha Pahuja after the screening.
