5+5 tells the story of Jin, a Beijing taxi driver who likes to drive artists. They all have his number, so whenever they have had too much to drink, they call him. Through Jin’s story we come to see a new and rare perspective onto China. Come see the film and hear the filmmakers, who will be traveling from Beijing to discuss their work.
Novelist Hisham Matar, the series founder, will interview filmmakers Xu Xing and Andrea Cavazzuti live after the screening.
