Documentary Explores the Realities of the Mega-Commute
A new documentary film called Rush Hour, presently touring film festivals around the world, depicts the mega-commutes of individuals living in Mexico City, Istanbul, and Los Angeles.
An article on CityLab by allows Juan Pablo Garnham a chance to sit down with the film's director Luciana Kaplan to discuss how the film was made and the choices along the way that shapes the film's final form. The interview touches on questions of social class and gender, and the surprising sympathies the film might inspire in people who don't necessarily spend as much time commuting as the subjects depicted in the film.
