Driving with Selvi - Film South India's first female taxi driver
Friday, March 24 -7pm - Fundraiser $10.00 per person $8.00 student/seniors

MOVIE & DISCUSSION NIGHT - "DRIVING with SELVI" this award-winning feature documentary has the powerful ability to inspire personal transformation and shift attitudes in entire communities.

DRIVING WITH SELVI

D: Elisa Paloschi

Selvi, like so many girls living within Indias 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. Instead she gets on the bus, choosing to live and goes on to become South Indias 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 difficult life. Over a ten-year journey, we see a remarkable transformation as Selvi finds her voice and defies all expectations learning to drive, starting her own taxi company, leading seminars to educate other women, and much more.

This character-driven story highlights the challenges that millions of devalued women and girls in India face. In a society where women are often considered expendable or worthless, Selvi refuses to accept this estimation for herself, moving beyond the pain shes experienced to create an entirely new life.

Through Selvis eyes, the audience is taken on an intimate journey of healing, overcoming obstacles, and fulfilling dreams. And throughout this journey, Selvis unwavering spirit shines through. Wildly charming (without even realizing it), remarkably strong, and utterly courageous, by the end of the film Selvi speaks almost as a sage or our wisest teacher, sharing important, hard-won secrets about happiness and life.

I (Elisa) met Daniel in India 11 years ago. Back then, I knew him as a death metal guitarist (but now he's more of a Music for Yoga, Meditation and Revolution type of guy - see link below), and an all around great addition to the "yoga scene" in Mysore. We hung out, made music (he contributed to the film's soundtrack with a couple of pieces we recorded back then) and shot the shit. A down to earth straight shooter with an understanding of the universe without all the belly button gazing. Check out his Runyon Canyon Park yoga classes LA, and for the rest of the world, check out his music Dharma Gypsys https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/volume-two-music-for-yoga/id871248281

Driving with Selvi: Movie Screening and Panel Discussion
There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.

Throughout the past century, we have made great strides in winning equal rights for women in society. And yet, women still face discrimination in the workplace, especially in the STEM fields. Most of these challenges are deeply rooted in conventionally assumed gender roles.

It is time that we addressed these issues.

Join us for the screening of Driving with Selvi, an award winning film based on the life and struggles of Selvi - the first woman taxi driver in South India. This will be followed by a panel discussion where several eminent women will share their perspectives on topics centering on the issues face by women in STEM fields.

Venue: Clary Theatre, Student Success center
