In Songzhuang, China, the newly formed arts community outside Bejing, unlicensed taxi driver named Lao Jin becomes the taxi driver for the artists who live there. After riding in his car, all of them: from the famous to the poor ones, sign his car. Writer and filmmaker Xu Xing teamed up with Italian filmmaker Andrea Cavazzuti to make a documentary about him. Xu and Andrea came to Barnard in November of 2012 to present their documentary on how the life of this artist represents a bigger change in Chinese society and art as a whole.
