Original title: “El taxista ful”


Pepe Rovira’s life would be like any other taxi driver’s if it weren’t for the fact that the taxis he drives are stolen. Pepe steals in order to work. The group of thinkers and activists from Espai en Blanc understands Pepe’s paradoxical gesture as a transgressive act of profound genius that pierces through the capitalist reality we tend to accept as the only possible one. From the encounter between the taxi driver and the group, a dialogue emerges that will lead us to reflect on precarity and the various ways of engaging with life and the community.
