Winner of the Best Canadian Feature at TIFF and the Best Documentary at Palm Springs International Film Festival, the latest from award-winning filmmaker Nisha Pahuja (The World Before Her) follows Ranjit, a farmer in Jharkand, India, as he takes on the fight of his life to find justice for his young daughter, the victim of a brutal gang rape. In India, where a rape is reported every 20 minutes and conviction rates are less than 30 percent, Ranjit’s decision to support his daughter is virtually unheard of, and his journey unprecedented. With tremendous access, To Kill a Tiger charts the emotional trial of an ordinary man facing extraordinary circumstances. A father whose love for his daughter forces a social reckoning that will reverberate for years to come.
“(The) story of how one family’s strength can overcome even the most heinous injustices. Nisha is an incredibly powerful storyteller and her film is a triumph.”– Mindy Kaling
