The World Before Her Trailer (2012)

Twenty hand-picked contestants for the Miss India pageant enter an intense month-long beauty boot camp in Bombay. Winning the coveted title means instant stardom, a lucrative career and freedom from the constraints of a patriarchal society. In another corner of India, young girls undergo physical combat training and learn how to be obedient Hindu women at a camp run by the women’s branch of the militant fundamentalist movement. As massive change sweeps through India, control over women and their behaviour is at the epicentre of a violent clash between Western modernity and age-old patriarchal traditions. Director Nisha Pauja gained extraordinary access to women and their families living in two very different worlds—it’s the first time a camera has been allowed into the fundamentalist camp—to craft a brilliant film that captures the choices and contradictions facing young women in India today.
