TRAILER

 
 

SYNOPSIS

Erick is the recluse in the family for the past decade. But nobody but him knows why.

10 years ago on his 17th birthday, his life took a harrowing turn when he boarded a taxi. The driver and two accomplices sexually assaulted him. For the then teenager, there would be no police reports. No medical attention. No support groups or counselling. No telling of his family or closest friends.

After feeling broken for a decade, the 27-year-old is now ready to confront his past and to reclaim his future. Would he find the perpetrators? How would his family and friends react to his secrets? What would come of his romantic life? Is he prepared to face the judgment of Mexico’s hypermasculine society?

ONE TAXI RIDE is an observational documentary that tells the intimate story of a male rape survivor. Erick’s innermost thoughts, fears, struggles and triumphs weave a dramatic tale of a man fighting for a future and a life worth living. His journey impacts the world around him in a way that he never saw coming.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

Sexual violence is a global problem. And discussion about the sexual assault of men is largely taboo worldwide although studies show that 10% of rape and sexual victims are male in the US and the UK.

In many societies, the concept of men being victims of sexual violence outside a prison setting is even considered a myth. So it comes as little surprise that men are much less likely to report rape victimisation than female survivors. And stigmatisation contributes to how lacking and limited the resources on sexual assault towards men are around the world.

The story of our documentary subject, Erick, haunts me. Not only because he was sexually assaulted. But it is also that we live in a world where he didn’t feel like he had any options available to deal with the violent attack. His decision to keep it a secret for 10 years reflects how society has failed countless individuals like him.

ONE TAXI RIDE delves into difficult questions surrounding a subject matter that is barely existent in the social consciousness. The film aims to create dialogue and discussion of a pressing issue that demands more resources for both survivors and their loved ones.
