Screening with the Odanadi Seva Trust girls was an emotional and uplifting experience for Selvi, and a bit of a home coming. Elisa and selvi met at Odanadi India in 2004, and its been quite a journey since then. Thanks to Odanadi Stanly and Parashuram for their work supporting women and girls!

[A screening that left me heart broken]

Since our launch on Oct. 11th in Delhi, we've screened in 4 states to 28 audiences. Selvi's Bus Tour has been full of surprises, deep connections, inspired audiences and a humbled team on the bus. Every screening has left us amazed by the resilience of the girls we meet, and the dedication of the NGOs we've partnered with. Last night, our screening was an acceptation, and unlike any other so far.

I was surprised to find 20 or so tiny little girls in the front few rows who looked no more than 3 or 4. Turns out they were 6, but tiny, innocent all the same. When I told the organizer that the film wasn't suitable for such young kids, he shook his head and said not to worry. I walked away and hid behind the screen and cried. These were not just normal 6 year olds, but orphans. I was about to pull the plug on the screening when one of my team mates had the good idea to skip the unsuitable scenes. So I did just that, I sat at the front of the room with my back to the audience, and jumped ahead to miss about 1/3 of the film.

I felt like I'd been beaten up, but I'm glad we stayed because these tiny little girls were delighted to see a woman driver with a great big smile. But still today there is so much pain and injustice to girls in India, and one single film will never be enough. -- Elisa

Child marriage is just one of the injustices that girls in Chittoor District face. Our screening in Keeramanda village showed that finding a little courage from within, can bring significance change.

These smiling girls lift their hands after a screening in response to "who thinks women should also be able to drive just like men?". These same girls said that the alternative to child marriage for many of them is "to slit our wrists, jump in a well, throw ourselves in front of a train..." This is why SELVI'S BUS TOUR is important. The film is a starting point for conversations that are not possible in the family setting.

Jayashree Jagannatha is not only our translator/interpreter, but many things. Recently she was helping our Telegu voice-over actor (he plays Selvi's husband) with his rehearsal session. Even Jayashree's own voice will appear in the film, as she adds the Kannada voice over to our intro statistics.

We are right in the middle of screening to a group of girls at a state run child welfare home. There's a scene where I ask Selvi a question and she proceeds to cry. This is the first time in the film that selvi is upset. All 72 of the kids began to shift in their seats, then turn around and glare at me -- Elisa

We spoke and screened at the WEConnect International in India ThinkBig conference to an audience of successful female entrepreneurs and business women. The take away? The same as our screenings to girls in rural communities. Face your challenges with a fiere positive attitude, and don't let others bring you down. Selvi's is the perfect #ThinkBig story. Thank you @Parul Soni and the team at @Think Through Consulting for including us. #WomenInBusiness #SelviSays

When people ask me what I do for work their eyebrows often raise quizzically: Screening coordinator?

Hi there my name is Cayley James and Im the screening coordinator on Driving with Selvi

Thats how Ive started hundreds of emails over the past year to; festivals, educators, community groups and activists - I think of myself as an ardent cheerleader for the films I work on. I've learned so much about the global fight for women's and girls rights. And how challenging it is to get people to listen and care. But when they do it's remarkable.

One of my responsibilities is following up with groups after theyve shown the film. Just a few weeks ago we screened at Acadia University in Nova Scotia. Professor Mary Sweatman, the event's organizer, got back to me to say: I have not seen a documentary more compelling, I have never felt so invested and close to a character, as to Selvi. This is a remarkable story of reliance, and I am grateful for the depth in inquiry and commitment that this film took by both Selvi and Elisa Paloschi. Thank you.

Its moments like this that even though I play a small role in whats a much bigger and global project, Im proud of my work on Driving with Selvi and it's confirmation film can slowly but surely change the world.
