Still from The World Before Her

The World Before Her, a documentary about Indian women by Indo-Canadian filmmaker Nisha Pahuja will open the World Documentary Competition in the 11th Tribeca Film Festival.

The documentary weaves together the stories of the Miss India beauty pageant and a fundamentalist Hindu camp for girls portraying the situation of women across contemporary India.

‘The World Before Her is a riveting, thoughtful profile of the fundamental contradictions of a country in transition,’ the official website of the festival mentions.

The film will be in English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati with subtitles.

The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival will screen films from 32 different countries, including 54 World Premieres.

12 films will be screened in World Narrative Competition, 12 films in World Documentary Competition, and 22 films in the out-of-competition Viewpoints section.

The 11th Tribeca Film Festival will take place from April 18 to 29 in lower Manhattan.
