MotherTruckers - Resilience of women behind the wheel

Set against the backdrop of Brexit and the UK's transport crisis, "Mothertruckers" offers an unprecedented look into the lives of female lorry drivers. The film, through Lisa's animated and voiced-over narrative, intertwines real-life challenges with imaginative storytelling, highlighting the struggle for identity and freedom in industry and society at odds with their presence. It navigates the dichotomy between the romanticized freedom of the road and the hard-hitting life challenges as a female truck driver, aiming to shift the traditional perspectives on this profession.
