Tianjin in the eyes of a cab driver | Updated: 2017-01-19 14:15

Tianjin Driver explores the city of Tianjin through the eyes of a cab driver. As she speaks about her daily work, we partake in a variety of scenes unfolding in Tianjin: from a quiet morning by the Haihe River, to the bustling central business district, from the traditional craftspeople in Tianjin's Ancient Culture Street, to a residential neighborhood where people enjoy street barbeque at the end of the day. As we ride in the cab we wonder whether she likes her work.

How different is it be a female cab driver in China than in western culture, where driving a cab is still a "man's job"? What does it mean to navigate a modern metropolis without a GPS? How do people in China relate to their work? Through exploring these themes, Tianjin Driver in the end is as much the portrait of a person, as it is a portrait of the city.
