Two types of screenings, theatrical and community. Ranjit and "Kiran" have indicated they would like to appear as speakers, along with the filmmakers, and we will continue to check in with them to ensure we are respecting duty-of-care protocols at all times. In certain screenings, experts and influencers will also participate in post-screening discussions.
To Kill a Tiger began its US theatrical release October 20 in New York and Los Angeles, and is expanding outward from there to theaters across the US.
We have established an extensive network of Grassroots Organizations and NGO's to partner with for screenings in a variety of venues from villages to city centres. Ranjit and “Kiran” have currently asked to appear as speakers. Respecting their wishes at all times and ensuring their wellbeing will always be our highest priority should they wish to attend screenings.
The Orange Ribbon
Breaking the silence and confronting taboos that exist around sexual assault, we’ll create a campaign using orange ribbons—a recurring metaphor in the film and the symbol that celebrates the courage and indomitable spirit of the survivor.
Theatrical Release - India
To ground the Orange Ribbon Campaign, we’ll create a theatrical release strategy around the film. This in turn will focus media coverage on the key issues including the prevalence of rape culture in India.
First Responders and Justice System
Many people in India give up on justice because of caste prejudice, poverty and the misogyny that exists in the legal system. It’s critical to shift the mindsets of the police, bar associations, and others in the legal profession so that their attitudes cease obstructing the pursuit of justice. We will organize screenings with lawyers, police and other members of the justice system, to invite discussion on how change can take place.
Hosting screenings in villages in states where rape statistics and sexual violence against women and girls are highest. With the support of our NGO partners, we’ll hold segregated showings of the film for men and women. Facilitators will create the space to speak freely.
