Writer/Director: Miao Wang
Documentary/ China and USA / 78 mins
Introduction and Q&A with director Miao Wang, just back from China.
Miao Wang's new film follows three cabdrivers in the lead-up to the 2008 Olympics. Powerful and uncensored, the film shadows the cabbies as they move through a rapidly changing city where historical districts are razed and luxury complexes thrown up. A intimate portrait of three average Chinese citizens riding the never-smooth road to modernization. The director “vividly portrays Beijing undergoing a profound transformation arch…through a humanistic lens,” says IndieWire.
