Leslee Udwin

Leslee is the director and producer of the ground breaking documentary India's Daughter. The film told the story of the brutal gang rape in 2012 of a 23 year old medical student on a Delhi bus. The student later died from her injuries. India's Daughter made international headlines and ignited protests. It is an impassioned plea for change and a tribute to a remarkable and inspiring young woman. In 1986, Leslee faced a life- and home-threatening experience at the hands of one of Britain's most notorious criminal landlords. After fighting a long and hard battle against him, and winning, she set about getting the story made as a TV film. The resultant TV film (BBC Screen Two) - Sitting Targets - had considerable impact as a piece of campaigning television.
