Beijing Taxi DVD
Filming before and during the 2008 Summer Olympics, documentarian Miao Wang uses the lives of three Beijing cab drivers─a middle-aged veteran of the streets, a young part-time bus driver, and a mother who wants to sell clothing─as metaphors for the sprawling Chinese capital's fitful metamorphosis into a 21st-century metropolis and its society's dichotomous nature. 78 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Mandarin; Subtitles: English. In Mandarin with English subtitles.
