To Kill A Tiger, set in a small Indian village, was on Tuesday nominated for the best documentary feature at the 2024 Academy Awards.

A Canadian production, To Kill A Tiger is directed by Delhi-born Nisha Pahuja, an Emmy-nominated filmmaker based in Toronto. Oscar-nominated actor Dev Patel and actress-producer Mindy Kaling have executive-produced the documentary.

To Kill A Tiger had its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival 2022 where it won the Amplify Voices Award for Best Canadian Feature Film. It also won the Best Documentary at the 2023 Palm Springs International Film Festival.

The film follows Ranjit’s uphill battle to find justice for his 13-year-old daughter who was abducted and later sexually assaulted by three men.

A cinematic documentary, To Kill A Tiger follows Ranjit’s uphill battle to find justice for his child,” according to the official website of the documentary film.
