India-set film Period. End of Sentence, which is based on the taboos around menstruation and featuring the real Pad Man, has made it to the Oscar nomination. The announcement of official Oscar nominations was made on Tuesday. The movie has made it to the top five nominees of the Documentary Short Subject category. Other nominees include Black Sheep, End Game, Lifeboat and A Night At The Garden.

“Period…” is executive produced by Guneet Monga and is co-produced by Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment, which has backed films like “The Lunchbox” and “Masaan”.

Ecstatic about making the cut, Monga told reporters over phone: “We made it… It is beyond everything we thought.”

The movie is about women in India fighting against the deeply rooted stigma of menstruation and delving upon the work of real life ‘Pad Man’ Arunachalam Muruganathan.

The film is directed by award-winning Iranian-American filmmaker Rayka Zehtabchi. The film is created by The Pad Project, an organisation established by an inspired group of students at the Oakwood School in Los Angeles and their teacher, Melissa Berton.

The 26-minute movie is based on girls and women in Hapur in northern India and their experience with the installation of a pad machine in their village.
