Life on Wheels - Transportation for a new urban century

Life on Wheels tells the compelling story of a culture on the verge of a revolution that will transform our economy, our environment, and the rhythms of our everyday lives. In this feature-length documentary, a collection of mobility mavens, technologists, and dreamers takes viewers on a journey through the highways, back alleys, and futurescapes of transportation – how we get from here to there. Life on Wheels addresses the promises, dangers, and absurdities of our current auto-centric transportation system and explores new possibilities and stories of change. The subject of mobility has vast implications. It touches our core values of freedom, health, safety, and happiness. It hits our pocketbooks and impacts how we spend our time and energy. It literally shapes our landscapes, cities, and social conditions. The path we choose will have profound implications for us and future generations.

Director Statement

We are a husband and wife team of filmmakers and video artists. We are passionate about creating stories and connection with others. We are concerned about the world and how we live in it. We look for ways in our art that bring connection, joy, provocation, stimulation, inspiration.

Our pieces typically blend editorial materials and innovative uses of technology to explore complex human and social questions. Some of our work is purely a visual exploration. We have shown ocean views on the side of a 40-story office building and were the first to use video iPods in an artistic installation.

In our work, we pose questions that probe individual hopes and resolutions. We hear the conversation of humanity striving for the comfort of permanence, all while recognizing that everything constantly changes around them.
