Driving with Selvi

Director : Elisa Paloschi


Selvi, like so many girls living within India’s patriarchal culture, is forced to marry at a young age, only to find herself in a violent and abusive marriage. One day in deep despair, she chooses to escape, going to a highway with the intention of throwing herself under the wheels of a bus. But instead, she gets on the bus, choosing to live… and goes on to become South India’s first female taxi driver.
