About the Event

Proudly Present a free screening of award winning documentary - INDIA’S DAUGHTER.

Saturday, June 8, 2019 @ 3:00 p.m.
Rice Cinema, room #100, located in the Rice Media Center 
Entrance #8, University Blvd & Stockton Drive

Following the screening of the documentary there will be a talk and Q&A with film director Leslee Udwin, named by the New York Times as the Second Most Influential Woman of 2015 (runner up to Hilary Clinton).


INDIA’S DAUGHTER is the story of a brutal gang rape of a young medical student in 2012, which sparked protests and debates worldwide about gender inequality.

Leslee Udwin is the winner of numerous awards, including the Peabody Award, the Asian Media Award, the San Diego Film Festival Award, the Stuttgart Indian Film Festival Award and the Biografilm Festival Award.

“A pervasive, discriminatory mindset is the root cause of human rights violations across our world. We can only break the cycles of violence, negative stereotypes, and prejudicial judgements, if we invest in encouraging values, empathy, and respect for the dignity and equality of others,” says Udwin.
