The documentary pays tribute to the remarkable and inspiring short life of Jyoti Singh and documents the brutality of her gang rape and murder in Delhi in 2012. It also examines the mindset of the perpetrators, and it sets these specifics against a wider in-depth exploration of why rape happens, including voices of the victim’s parents and friends.
The documentary film will be shown in conjunction with a panel discussion moderated by Niala Boodhoo, Host on WBEZ, Chicago Public Media. The panelists include Neha Gill, Executive Director, Apna Ghar Lubia Nuñez-Montelongo, Community Educator – Sexual Assault Program, Mujeres Latinas en Acción, and Diana Newton, Executive Director, Porchlight Counseling Services. Kalapriya Dance Company will present and perform specially curated dance works.
Doors open at 6 pm. Join us for light refreshments and a meet and greet before the event. See you there!
