UMass Boston Film Series: The World Before Her
Event Date: February 07, 2013 - 8 p.m.
Event Type: Open to public | Location: UMass Boston Campus Center, 3rd Floor, Ballroom
Moving between two extremes—the intimate verité 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.
A Q&A with filmmaker Nisha Pahuja will follow the free screening.
