A film by Catherine Hamilton.
Completed as a final project for the MA in Visual Anthropology, Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, University of Manchester.
Over-the-road trucking is typically considered a male-dominated and dirty blue collar job in the United States, but DaShonda (a.k.a. Shawny) is one of about 200,000 female truck drivers in the U.S. (vs 3.5 million of her male counterparts) and she likes to do it in style. This film follows Shawny as she hauls 15,000 lbs of potato crisps 1,941 miles across the southern United States, and takes a look at an unlikely friendship formed between her and the stranger she let's into her world.
