ICC Greenwich Presents Daughters of Mother India
Greenwich, CT – May 11, 2015May 11, 2015
ICC Greenwich presented National Film Award Winner, Daughters of Mother India on May 11th to a sold out crowd. Daughters of Mother India is an Indian filmmaker’s journey through the aftermath of the horrific rape and murder of a 23 year old medical intern in Delhi on 16th December 2012. This documentary goes inside the Indian society, the Government and looks at the swift and radical changes being made in the Police, the Judiciary and community groups, who are provoking a national dialogue on the current sexist attitudes of Indian society and how to change them.
Following the film, there was a thought provoking panel discussion with director Vibha Bakshi led by Greenwich residents Rachel and Jaideep Khanna. To view a trailer from the film, please visit: http://www.daughtersofmotherindia.com.
