Dir: Laurence Frial, Charlene Campbell
Set during 2019’s Cuba in the post-revolution and post-Soviet society of scarce available resources, taxi drivers / mechanics must continue to maintain the classic 1950’s cars inherent to their culture, and more importantly, essential to tourist attraction. Through endless car part repairs, adaptations, and just plain love for these machines, Cubans are constantly finding ways to keep their old cars on the road. Many taxi drivers also give themselves the title of mechanic, as they must make sure their cars are never stranded, and always stylishly cruising to the next destination.
