Documentary on Delhi Gang Rape to be Premiered on March 8
A new documentary based on the fatal gang rape of a woman in New Delhi in 2012 highlights gender inequality and sex crimes in India, with the seeming lack of remorse among those convicted of the crime shocking even the film’s director.
Leslee Udwin’s “India’s Daughter” features conversations with Mukesh Singh and fellow convicts who raped and tortured a 23-year-old woman on a moving bus in December 2012, sparking nationwide protests and forcing India to toughen anti-rape laws.
The film will have its world premiere on March 8, showing in India as well as Britain, Denmark and other countries simultaneously on the occasion of International Women’s Day. Comments released to the media showed that in the film, Singh blames the victim for the crime and resisting rape.
