Year Released: 2000
Renowned actress Mita Vasisht enacts the journey of a fearless woman who leaves an abusive marriage and works as a truck driver to support her daughter and herself. Women of all ages and backgrounds climb into the truck to escape the violence they face in their lives. They dance and rejoice on the back of the truck, and the video closes with them dancing together on the sand dunes of Rajasthan. The video is well-choreographed, exuberant and enchanting, and has proved an invaluable tool across the globe in raising the important issues of violence against women, women in non-traditional occupations and women’s access to public space.
