84 min / 2019 / Mexico / Spanish / Documentary Feature / In Competition
Erick’s life changed forever when he got into a taxi. The driver and two accomplices sexually assaulted him. The then 17-year-old never went to the police, never saw a doctor and never told his family or friends. After feeling broken for 10 years, he goes on a journey to reclaim his life – changing the world around him along the way.
One Taxi Ride delves into difficult questions surrounding a subject matter that is barely existent in the social consciousness. The film aims to create dialogue and discussion of a pressing issue that demands more resources for both survivors and their loved ones.
