Coming to theatres via Cinedigm’s Docurama initiative this Tuesday, May 7: THE WORLD BEFORE HER
Nisha Pahuja’s exploration of extreme expressions of Indian femininity had its world premiere at Tribeca last year, where it won a jury award. It repeated the win at Hot Docs, Traverse City, and San Diego Asian, and also screened at Warsaw, Little Rock, Sydney, Reykjavik, CNEX Doc, Vancouver, Abu Dhabi, Bergen, IDFA, and Big Sky, among others. The film is part of Cinedigm’s new seven-film program bringing feature documentaries to theatres weekly in up to fifteen US markets, including NYC, LA, Pasadena, Encino, San Diego, Palm Desert, Austin, San Antonio, Phoenix, Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Hartford, New Haven, Ithaca, Richmond, and Helena. The films are also available for additional theatrical-on-demand screenings via Tugg. In NYC, Cinema Village will screen the doc this Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
