The documentary director, Laura J. Lukitsch, spent 10 days in Beijing, filming eight commuters using seven forms of transportion including biking, walking, driving, taxi, subway, bus and high speed rail. The Beijing commutes will be part of the larger film, showing commuter experiences in four cities - Beijing, San Francisco, London and Lima. Through these experiences the film compares and contrasts the work these cities are doing to deal with the challenges of growing congestion, increases in energy costs, and concerns over climate change.
You can check out details on the trip at the MIND THE GAP Kickstarter Campaign Updates page.
