To Kill a Tiger

To Kill a Tiger


Content Warning: This film contains difficult imagery, violence. Language or subject matter may be offensive or triggering to some viewers.

With tremendous access to the subjects, this film takes us along the terrible journey of a family in a small Indian village as they survive and struggle to achieve justice after their child is found to be the victim of a violent sexual assault committed by members of their small community.

The child’s father, Ranjit goes to the police, and the men are arrested, but the ordeal continues as, as the villagers and village leaders launch a sustained campaign to force the family to drop the charges.

We witness the emotional journey of a father facing a community turned against him as we follow Ranjit as he continues the battle against injustice, while trying to heal and repair the harm in his family.

Her film is remarkable for its significance beyond highlighting sexual abuse and its consequences. In a world of where increasingly conservative mindsets feel near immovable, Pahuja reveals that there is always a capacity to change.
