Film "The World Before Her" 2013-02-13 19:10:00



Director: Nisha Pahuja   Canada, 2012, 90 min; English & Hindi with subtitles

WINNER! BEST DOCUMENTARY! –Tribeca Film Festival

This vivid, award-winning documentary follows two passionate and ambitious young women in starkly contrasted parts of India. In Mumbai, Ruhi embarks on a beauty bootcamp in preparation for the Miss India beauty pageant, while in rural India, Prachi works and teaches at the right-wing Hindu fundamentalist camp for young women. The beauty business may be one of the only ways for an Indian woman to achieve a certain status, but both women are ultimately circumscribed by the livelihoods that claim to liberate them. Despite their best efforts, they remain firmly stuck in the patriarchal culture they inhabit. The stories told here may be deeply personal, but director Pahuja’s core question looms larger—what does the future hold? –Vancouver International Film Festival
