A Portrait of India’s Daughter

India’s Daughter is the story of the brutal gang rape and murder in Delhi of Jyoti Singh, a 23-year-old medical student, which sparked protests and serious debate about gender-based violence across India. The documentary by Leslee Udwin uncovers how the case led to huge demonstrations and a trial in which all six perpetrators were convicted. In this short clip from the film, Singh’s parents describe the kind of daughter she was, and the heartbreak they felt after her murder. This is the second of three clips from India’s Daughter, courtesy of Independent Lens (you can watch the first clip here). The film in its entirety is currently streaming on the PBS video player.
