Best Feature Documentary, 2016
India’s Daughter (India, 62 min)
Directed by Leslee Udwin
A tribute to the remarkable and inspiring short life of Jyoti Singh; documenting the brutality of her gang-rape and murder in Delhi in December 2012; its a study into the mindset of the men committed this heinous act and the patriarchal society and culture which foment such actions toward women. The film is however optimistic, as the case has been a catalyst for change, and the massive public outrage to the incident bears witness to an attitudinal change on the horizon, which the film seeks to amply.
