Paaras Youth Center - Movie Night 7/11/14

The whole family is invited for an evening of a movie and discussion.  This week's movie is the critically-acclaimed documentary - The World Before Her.  The movie won a number of critics award and is seen as an important film.  Join us as we explore and think about the movie from a Sikh-lens.

Here is a blurb on the documentary:

The World Before Her is a fascinating portrait of two women and two Indias. It reveals a world of startling contrasts between urban and rural, jeans and saris, consumer culture and poverty, where rapid economic development fuels a sharpening conflict between tradition and modernity—especially when it touches on women and religion. In focusing on two particularly thoughtful young women—one a militant Hindu nationalist, the other a contestant for Miss India—The World Before Her provides a timely account of a multi-faceted, often confusing clash over values and the future of the world’s largest democracy.
