“Silent Screams” - India's Fight Against Rape is a 45-minute documentary that begins with the gang-rape and subsequent death of a young medical student on December 16 in New Delhi. Produced by Miditech Pvt. Ltd. For Channel News Asia.
This film was a searing indictment ofthe brutality of that crime led to widespread street protests demanding stricter laws against sexual violence.

Through the story of three rapes -- the Delhi December gang-rape, another in rural Haryana and a third that came to be known as the 'Park Street' rape -- the film explored how and why justice eludes victims. It looked at inherent biases within society and the police and asked what can be done to change this.
