Nishua Pahuja's The World Before Her will have its Boston Premiere at UMass Boston as part of the UMass Boston Film Series.

Boston Premiere

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.
