Driving with Selvi

D: Elisa Paloschi | CANADA | 72 min | U.S. Premiere

Selvi, like so many girls living in India, was forced to marry at 14, only to find herself in a violent and abusive marriage. One day in deep despair she escapes, flees to a highway with the intent of throwing herself under a bus. But rather than jump, she boards the bus, choosing to live… going on to become South India’s first female taxi driver.

Through Selvi’s eyes, we share an intimate journey of healing, overcoming hardships, and fulfilling dreams. And throughout, Selvi’s unwavering spirit shines through. With unbounding charm, remarkable strength and tremendous courage, Selvi speaks to us by the end of the film as almost a sage or our wisest teacher, sharing important, hard-won secrets about happiness and life.
