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.

“Ranjit goes to the police, and the men are arrested. But Ranjit’s relief is short-lived, as the villagers and their leaders launch a sustained campaign to force the family to drop the charges. 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.

The film is produced by Cornelia Principe and David Oppenheim.

Other four nominees in the Best Oscar for documentary feature include Bobi Wine: The People’s President, The Eternal Memory, Four Daughters, and 20 Days in Mariupol.
