"A triumph." - Mindy Kaling, Executive Producer

"Has an undeniable and unshakable power. It is one of those documentaries where anyone who watches it won’t be the same person by the end as they were when it started." - Andrew Parker, The Gate

In a small Indian village, Ranjit wakes up to find that his 13-year-old daughter has not returned from a family wedding. A few hours later, she’s found stumbling home. After being abducted into the woods, she was sexually assaulted by three men. As the villagers and their leaders launch a sustained campaign to force the family to drop the charges, Ranjit embarks on an unprecedented journey for justice. Executive produced by Mindy Kaling and Dev Patel, and with Pahuja's unshakable and compassionate lens, TO KILL A TIGER captures a remarkable social reckoning, and the power of a family’s love. Content consideration: contains themes of sexual assault. Film Center exclusive.
