See this film: The World Before Her as part of the UMB Film Series @ UMass Boston

More people should know about the University of Massachusetts Boston Film Series, which offers outstanding recent films, many of them local premieres, plus appearances by the filmmakers. This year's spring program runs through April 25 and opens today with Nisha Pahuja's The World Before Her (2012), a compelling documentary that compares and contrasts two different, and equally alarming, training camps for women in India: one for the Miss India beauty contest and the other for a Hindu-nationalist paramilitary group. The director will be on hand for a discussion.

UMB Film Series, Campus Center Ballroom, University of Massachusetts Boston Campus, 100 Morrissey Boulevard, Boston :: Thursday, February 7 @ 7 pm :: Free :: 617.230.7846 or
