Netflix, reports Variety, has acquired Nisha Pahuja’s Oscar-nominated documentary feature To Kill a Tiger, which tells the story of the father of a 13-year-old rape victim in Jharkhand and his long and lonely fight for justice.
The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2022 and was awarded best documentary at Palm Springs.
The 127-minute film charts the emotional journey of Ranjit, a farmer in Jharkhand, whose determined effort forces a social reckoning after his 13-year-old daughter is the victim of a gang rape, adds Variety.
Pahuja, who spent eight months making the film, is a New Delhi-born Canadian director who was previously in the news about her Emmy nomination for the documentary feature The World Before Her, which is about the complex, conflicting environment in which young girls grow up in India. For the last 6 months, To Kill a Tiger executive producers Mindy Kaling and Dev Patel have been actively promoting the film, with Priyanka Chopra Jonas who also joined the project as an executive producer.’ (IANS)
