A VIAJE BY TAXI (A TRIP BY TAXI)

Mexico. 2019. 84 '. Documentary. VOSTF.
Director and image: Mak CK

Erick's life changed forever when he got into a cab. The driver and two accomplices sexually assaulted him. The 17-year-old has never been to the police, never seen a doctor, and never told his family or friends about it. After feeling broken for ten years, he sets out on a journey to reclaim his life, changing the world around him along the way.

The question of sexual assault against men rarely appears in public discourse (whereas in the United States, one in ten rape victims is male!): Perhaps because it is in direct contradiction to the concept traditional and sometimes toxic masculinity. But that is slowly changing in the wake of the #MeToo movement and unprecedented media coverage of sexual assaults against men. Awarded numerous festival prizes, Un Viaje en taxi is one of the first observation documentaries to explore this taboo subject. A moving work on the importance of speaking out and the power of resilience.
