Join us for the start of the 2013 North Shore International Film Series withe critically acclaimed movie The World Before Her.
The World Before Her is a provocative and insightful documentary of a country in transition. As massive change sweeps through India, control over women and their behaviour is at the epicentre of a violent clash between Western modernity and age-old patriarchal traditions.
Director Nisha Pauja gained extraordinary access to women and their families living in two very different worlds, the end result is a rivetingly powerful film - devastating, moving, and ultimately uplifting.
The World Before Her is the winner of the Best Documentary award at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival and named Best Canadian Feature Documentary at the 2012 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.
