    Driving with Selvi: Through the lens of filmmaker Elisa Paloschi

    in Culture

    Gentle World Cafe host, Suparna Malhotra, talks with Elisa Paloschi, about her film.


    Driving with Selvi is a documentary film that tells the story of a remarkable young woman who defies strict patriarchal traditions and escapes a child marriage to become South India’s first female taxi driver.


    We first meet 18-year-old Selvi at a girls’ shelter in 2004 - timid, soft-spoken, a fresh runaway from a violent past and the victim of a life set against her.


    Over the 10 years filmed, we see a remarkable transformation as Selvi finds her voice and refuses to surrender to societal expectations – learning to drive, starting her own taxi company and working on the front lines of reproductive health education.


    Instead of adhering to the patriarchal codes that oppress and restrict women, Selvi’s bold determination defies and challenges them. Will she hold steadfast on her road to economic empowerment? Will she remarry? After being unwanted and abused by her own mother, will she be able to break the vicious cycle of devaluing girls so prevalent in her society?


    This character-driven story highlights the challenges that the disempowered female population in India face. While the film offers a glimpse into a world of poverty, prejudice and desperate circumstances, it shatters stereotypes as Selvi redefines herself from victim to survivor.


    Through Selvi’s eyes, the audience is taken on an intimate journey, and perhaps even a familiar one, of healing, overcoming obstacles, and fulfilling dreams. Throughout this journey, it is Selvi’s unwavering spirit that shines through. Her refusal to surrender offers inspiration, hope and the clear message that anything is possible.

    He did not want to let Dena down, but he had made plans to attend a summer beach party with Chuck and Antonio, his buddies. So off to the beach party he went, drinking and having a great time, a much needed great time; meanwhile Dena showed up and asked why did he break their plans and she wanted to stay at the party with him. Devin told her she needed to go home because he was with his boys and besides you don’t bring sand to the beach. This instantly upset Dena who begin to cry and threaten to not be around when he returned from the party.



    Should Devin had let Dena stay or was he right for sending her away?  Let's discuss this very real situation on COCKTAIL CONVERSATIONS with The Controversial Counselor.
