2011-12 Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture is presenting 3 films in the light of architecture and urbanism under the theme of the Biennale, “Tri-ciprocal Cities: The Time, The Place, The People”, the last of the trio being Night on Earth. Five taxis, five cities, one night. The film wanders in the night of Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome and Helsinki as it unveils the vignettes of life on various taxi rides. Exploiting the infinite possibilities of chance encounter, the film serves as a moving portrait of the cities.
