In the back of a London Taxi, the driver bears witness to four separate encounters.

A couple discuss their chess moves on the way to the hospital. A woman leaves

her husband for her lover. A man debates his life with his inner woman. And a

spotty teen boy waits to take his girlfriend to Prom night.

 

Ordinary people, ordinary lives. He’s not here to judge them, he’s just here to drive.

 

 

 

 

Filmed 1-2 March 2008 in the London Borough of Lewisham

Using the Sony PMW EX1 HD solid state camcorder
