One Taxi Ride

East Coast Premiere

Dir. Mak CK, Mexico and Singapore, 2019, 84 mins

When Erick was 17 years old, his life changed forever. Ten years after a traumatic taxi ride, he’s ready to reclaim his future and set out on a journey that will shift not only his path, but that of those closest to him. A thoughtful and delicate look at how sexual violence impacts survivors and their relationships and futures, Mak CK’s documentary doesn’t turn Erick’s trauma into a source of spectacle, but, rather, a means of healing and honest introspection.

ONE TAXI RIDE is a hopeful and commendable piece of documentary filmmaking, modeling ethical storytelling and the ways in which art and activism can and should cathartically collide.

Presented in partnership with Latin Reel.
