Documentaries are stories – hopefully important stories. Documentary films are some of the most popular films on networks such as Netflix and Canada’s CBC.

In late April, in Toronto, the world of documentary films comes together as part of the Hot Docs Festival.

My next guest is showcasing one of these important stories: The Daughter Tree. It is a film that explores the aftermath of a cultural preference for baby boys in the interior of India. The film is seen through the eyes of two people: of a midwife who advocates for baby girls as well as a man who lives in the Village of Men where a girl as not been born in over 20 years.

Please welcome to the show: writer, producer, and director Rama Rau.
