OTTAWA’S CINEMA FOR INTERNATIONAL AND INDEPENDENT MOVIES

Driving With Selvi

One night only! Director Elisa Paloschi and ‘star’ Selvi will attend and conduct a post-screening Q&A!

Poster for the documentary film Driving With SelviBeautifully simple and simply beautiful, Driving With Selvi is an unexpectedly joyous documentary that tracks ten years in the life of Selvi, a young South Indian woman who has dragged herself free of hardship and horror by sheer force of will.

Married at 14 to a man who treated her horribly, Selvi ran away to a local girls’ shelter. It’s here that we first meet her, at age 18, shell-shocked but still fighting, and learning to drive. Later, she becomes the first female taxi driver in Karnataka.

Through sensitive but probing interviews and footage of Selvi’s day-to-day life, Canadian director Elisa Paloschi makes us feel privileged to share the experiences of this courageous, principled and utterly charismatic young woman.
