9 Years Behind The Wheel

USA, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Edward Jones

A cabby who wants to make movies! The result is an astonishing collage of miniature portraits of his customers, fellow cabbies and family. A quirky, often hilarious portrait of Califomian life reminiscent of Sherman's March.

"This film belongs in a time capsule." T.R. Bergroth
