  • REEL Engagement: The World Before Her
    5:30pm:
    Stevens Theatre
    The 2013 documentary presents two contrasting versions of womanhood and seemingly different responses to the challenges of contemporary Indian society. The World Before Her is a fascinating portrait of two women and two Indias. It reveals a world of startling contrasts between urban and rural, jeans and saris, consumer culture and poverty, where rapid economic development fuels a sharpening conflict between tradition and modernity—especially when it touches on women and religion. In focusing on two particularly thoughtful young women—one a militant Hindu nationalist, the other a contestant for Miss India—The World Before Her provides a timely account of a multi-faceted, often confusing clash over values and the future of the world’s largest democracy.
