Our final film of our screening weekend is the very hard hitting documentary India’s Daughter which is about the life and death of Jyoti Singh, an Indian medical student whose violation and murder by gang rapists exposed the violent misogyny of Indian society.
We are greatly honoured to be joined by the hugely respected filmmaker, actress, director, producer and human rights activist Leslee Udwin who is introducing the film and taking questions after the film. We are really looking forward to welcoming Leslee to our community cinema.
Leslee is a BAFTA and multi-award winning Film Producer/Director. Her work as a filmmaker includes “East is East”, “Who Bombed Birmingham?” (which led to the release of the Birmingham 6 after 17 years of wrongful imprisonment) and “India’s Daughter” (which has sparked a global movement for gender equality). A Human Rights Campaigner with many accolades Leslee has spoken at the UN and voted by the NY Times the Second Most Impactful woman 2015, after Hillary Clinton. Leslee is founder & CEO of the Think Equal Charity.
