Beijing Taxi
is a timely, uncensored and richly cinematic portrait of China’s ancient capital as it undergoes a profound transformation. The film takes an intimate and compelling look at the lives of three cab drivers as they confront modern issues and changing values against the backdrop of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. Through their daily struggles infused with humour and quiet determination, Beijing Taxi reveals the complexity and contradictions of China’s shifting paradigm.
