Taxiway

Alicia Harrison

2013 | 60 minutes | France, U.S.

U.S. Premiere | Director in Attendance

What does it mean to try to become who you want to be? How do you choose your life instead of letting it be shaped by circumstance? French-American director Alicia Harrison’s documentary poses these universal questions from an unlikely place: the interiors of taxicabs across New York City. She weaves together immigrant drivers’ stories of struggle, resignation, and hope, opening a rare window into the lives of the taxi drivers so many of us interact with regularly without ever really knowing. Harrison grew up in the city, and her sharp eye for people and place and sympathetic questioning help shape an intimate portrait of contemporary New York City as seen through its streets and the cab drivers who navigate them.

Co-presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy

Top Ten Ldn

Tara Manandhar

2013 | 10 min| U.K.

U.S. Premiere

A riot of joyful color and positive energy, Top Ten Ldn creates a visceral tapestry out of London’s cultural hotpot, crisscrossing the city to document a whirlwind of weddings and street carnivals, markets and park games—all the hustle and bustle of life on the street among one of the most diverse immigrant populations on earth.
