Drivers Wanted USA, 2012, 53 minutes Director: Joshua Weinstein
Drivers Wanted reveals the impossibly eclectic community inhabiting NYC's most famous taxi garage. The film follows Eric, a new immigrant from China with a family to support; he turns to driving a taxicab. It proves to be a Herculean struggle for Eric, who can neither speak the language nor navigate the city's 6,174 miles of streets. Along for Eric's ride, we meet classic New York personalities, including the city's oldest taxi driver, the rumored inspiration behind Danny DeVito's Louie DePalma, and a melting pot of immigrants with dreams of making it in America.
Preceded by Still Moving: Pilobolus at Forty USA, 2012, 38 minutes Director: Jeffrey Ruoff
At Dartmouth College in the 1970s, four male athletes joined a dance class, improvising vigorous creations from scratch. Their collaborative work led to the formation of Pilobolus and the transformation of modern dance. Eschewing the bright lights of Manhattan, and naming themselves after a microscopic fungus, Pilobolus centered in rural Connecticut. The troupe honed a movement philosophy to teach dancers and non-dancers alike. Still Moving: Pilobolus at Forty focuses on the company's lifecycle--including a founder's death--its evolution, transformation, and regeneration.
