"A powerful and emotional film, No Fare is a personal story of tragedy, courage and hope set against the machinations of the American justice and legal system" – Midlands Movies
With first-hand testimony, dramatic reconstruction and personal video diaries, this new documentary tells the shocking story of how a dream trip became a nightmare when a New York taxi mounted the sidewalk and hit 23-year-old Leicester woman, Sian Green.
A celebrity doctor and quick-thinking plumber saved her life, but Sian lost her leg. Despite this, there was no compensation for her or punishment for the driver.
The screening will be followed by Q&A with producer Wayne Kelly, director Matt Holt and Sian Green.
Screening as part of REAL documentary film festival.
