Taxi Stories is a mosaic film of three stories in three different Asian cities where the paths of the rich and poor cross one another in and around taxis. A closeted Beijing taxi driver tries to seduce a rich passenger, a Hong Kong pregnant trophy wife starts to develop feelings for her new Indonesian maid and a Jakarta slum orphan becomes infatuated with a Western female backpacker. All three characters desperately want to connect on a basic human level but are their own worst obstacle. In a new Asia where social mobility is linked to increasing wealth, money divides and separates each of them making it harder to be who they really are and not what they appear to be.

*Post-screening Q&A Session with Director Huang Hui-chen via Skype

Every morning, my mother wakes up well before me, prepares my lunch, and takes off. Every evening, after eating out, my mom comes home, washes up, closes her bedroom door, and is asleep by 9PM.
My mother and I live in the same space, but for decades now, we are like strangers. The only exchanges are the meals she cooks for me. No hellos, no goodbyes, and no 'I love you'.
Silence permeates our house as I watch her, knowing that beneath the deafening silence lies a secret that weighs heavily on her, keeping her from speaking; knowing that behind her tightly pursed lips is a shame so overbearing that it suffocates her.
One day, I finally summon up the courage to sit her down and make her talk. My camera becomes a gateway and a tool in prying open the Pandora’s box. But am I ready to hear what she has to say? Are we ready to face what’s been buried for so long?
