SAWC is looking forward to the screening of
DRIVING WITH SELVI screenings at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema (506 Bloor St. W) and the co-presentation.
DRIVING WITH SELVI
Meet Selvi: A charming, strong and utterly courageous young woman who happens to be South India’s first female taxi driver. Selvi was forced to marry at a young age, only to find herself in a violent and abusive marriage. One day, in a desperate bid to escape, she fled to a highway with the intention of throwing herself under a bus—instead, she hailed the bus and started her remarkable journey. Over a 10-year journey, we see a remarkable transformation as Selvi finds her voice and defies all expectations: learning to drive, starting her own taxi company, leading educational seminars and much more.
Selvi and director Elisa Paloschi and will be in attendance for Q&As following all screenings.
SAT, OCT 22 – 27, select dates & times
