Summary
This timely, uncensored and richly cinematic portrait of China’s ancient capital captures the true nature of a city as it undergoes a profound transformation.

Through their daily struggles infused with humor and quiet determination, BEIJING TAXI reveals the complexity and contradictions of China’s shifting paradigm. Nominated for the Grand Jury Award for Documentary Feature at the SXSW Film Festival. "Interesting and Poignant... Seamless... Elegantly Framed." - The New York Times. "Critic's Pick!
