Beijing Taxi

Directed by Miao Wang 
78 mins. / USA /China/ In Putonghua with English subtitles / 2010

June 2, 2012       7.30pm  (Director Q&A)   

The lives of three Beijing taxi drivers as they navigate a quickly morphing city in preparation for the 2008 Olympics. They radiate a warm sense of humanity despite the struggles adapting to the new realities of life. Bai Jiwen belongs to the lost generation who came of age during the Cultural Revolution; Wei Caixia has aspirations of a free-spirited life and entrepreneurial success; and Yi Zhou, an affable and content man, holds on to the less ambitious, more traditional Beijinger’s lifestyle of the past.
