Ishka Films presents Throwline - a short documentary by Mia Mullarkey
This award winning short documentary follows a group of taxi drivers in Kilkenny, Ireland, who join together to form a suicide prevention group called Taxi Watch. Uniquely positioned to patrol the night, the drivers keep vigil over the city's streets and bridges and offer help to those who feel forlorn. A throwline is a rope thrown into a river to save a person from drowning. In this short film we accompany the drivers at night and witness their world of rescues and revelations.
