(1991) Written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. Gena Rowlands, Winona Ryder, Roberto Benigni. (129 min.) Rated R
Five cabbies in five cities—LA, New York, Paris, Rome, and Helsinki—simultaneously pick up a fare on a winter night. An episodic city symphony, unpredictable, profane, washed over by the growly music of Tom Waits. “Jarmusch is a true visionary … In this compassionate comedy of missed connections, he makes us see the ordinary in fresh and pertinent ways” (Rolling Stone).

This film will be introduced by poet and writer Chris Vitiello.
