THE DAUGHTER TREE is an epic documentary film, six years in the making, about India’s horrifyingly rampant sex-selective abortions resulting in all-male populations in some villages. Every 12 seconds a baby girl is aborted in India. Every 22 minutes a woman is raped. The connection between these two statistics is at once horrifying and eye-opening. The world’s largest democracy with a rapidly growing population of about 1.32 billion is poised on the brink of a seismic population shift towards male-centricity. THE DAUGHTER TREE takes us on a journey of a midwife struggling to encourage women to bring baby girls into the world. In the Village of Men, where no baby girl has been born for decades, families here are now marooned in a womanless existence. It’s when we visit the Village of the Daughter Tree that we discover something quite magical has been going on in a remote corner of India. Every time a baby girl is born, a tree is planted. The tree grows, the baby grows. As an adult, she makes a living selling its fruit - this way the girl is independent and the environment is greener. They call this tree the Daughter Tree.
