The San Francisco–based Global Lives Project produces long-form documentaries that capture the rich diversity of human experience and engender cross-cultural dialogue and understanding.  Each 24-hour film provides a window onto a single day in the life of its subject. This latest iteration of the project, Lives in Transit, focuses on ten individuals who in their own ways are responsible for moving people and products throughout the world. Presented as a large-scale video installation, Lives in Transit is more than an exploration of ten unique people—it is a dynamic ground-level examination of our hyper-connected world.

Catch a free special screening of shorts from around the world, followed by a panel with the directors at Meet the Makers on October 1, followed by a reception in the Furman Gallery from 7:30pm – 8:00pm with free Stella beer.

On view in the Walter Reade Theater’s Furman Gallery throughout the festival.
