Los Angeles sources stated that a film on menstruation, set in rural India, titled "Period. End of Sentence," has earned a nomination in the Documentary Short Subject category for the 91st Academy Awards. Meanwhile award winning filmmaker Rayka Zehtabchi has directed the short film, which has been produced by Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment.

Monga posted on twitter "We all made it happen! This is so EPIC". Furthermore the film came to being as a part of The Pad Project, started by students at the Oakwood School in Los Angeles and their teacher, Melissa Berton. Reportedly the documentary feature is set in Hapur village outside Delhi, where women lead a quiet revolution as they fight against the deeply rooted stigma of menstruation. Hence for generations, these women did not have access to sanitary pads, which lead to health issues and girls dropping out from schools.
