About the movie

In December 2012, a 23-year-old woman and her friend got on a private bus in Delhi. The men already on board, five passengers and the bus driver, gang-raped the woman, beat her friend, and threw them onto the street. The woman died of her injuries two weeks later. In this angry, impassioned and essential new film ‘The Anatomy of Violence’, celebrated filmmaker Deepa Mehta investigates one of India’s most notorious crime. The film mixes fiction and fact in an improvised exploration of the events. The film premiers at TIFF in September.
