Six filmmakers. Six countries. Six taxi drivers. One global story of overcoming conflict.
THE TAXI TAKES is a unique global filmmaking experiment that follows the stories of six taxi drivers in societies overcoming conflict, told by six different filmmakers local to the driver's country. These six stories will be woven together into one collaborative feature documentary that presents diverse voices and honest interactions that blur political and religious boundaries. By exploring the world through grassroots perspectives, THE TAXI TAKES celebrates the resilience of the human spirit. One taxi ride at a time.
