Glasgow Film Festival
One Taxi Ride

Mon 2 March 2020

Erick was just seventeen when he got into a taxi in Mexico City. The driver and two accomplices sexually assaulted him. He never went to the police, never saw a doctor and never told his nearest and dearest. The events of that night have dominated his life, ruining potential relationships and leaving him an angry young man. In C K Mak’s intensely emotional, uplifting documentary, we follow Erick as he embarks on a journey to reclaim his life. It is a tale of unburdening and reconciliation in which he becomes an inspirational symbol to fellow survivors of male rape.

Also screening on Sun 1 Mar, 8.15pm (GFT)
