Summary, etc. note: An homage to the taxi driver in the age of Uber Aimée de Jongh, one of the brightest new talents in Europe, creates her first autobiographical work, focusing on taxi rides from four cities: Los Angeles, Paris, Jakarta, and Washington, DC. Despite the stunning and detailed streetscapes she passes, de Jongh discovers she’s more interested in the cab drivers than the view from the backseat. As the drivers slowly open up about their personal lives, de Jongh does too — even when it means challenging her own ideas and prejudices. Through these vulnerable — and often humorous — moments, de Jongh finds common ground with the people driving her. TAXI is an ode to taxi drivers everywhere.
