“India’s Daughter” is getting an U.S. release slated this fall via Paladin.
Leslee Udwin directs the documentary that has Susan Sarandon and Nick Fraser as executive producers with Frieda Pinto serving as associate producer. The project is an Assassin Films Production.
The documentary details the 2012 gang rape and death of 23-year-old medical student, Jyoti Singh, in New Delhi. “India’s Daughter” gained global attention after India banned the film two days before it was scheduled to be broadcast on NDTV.
“India’s Daughter” bows Oct. 23 in New York and Oct. 30 in Los Angeles. Following its theatrical release, the film will air on PBS.
The film has already played in the U.K. and some film festivals.
