Project aims to document 24 hours in the lives of transportation workers

Friend of Muni Diaries Erich tips us off to the Global Lives Project latest goal:

“From bus fare collectors to flight attendants, mule packers to bicycle rickshaw drivers, we will faithfully capture 24 continuous hours of routines and rituals in the lives of 10 individuals instrumental in moving people and goods throughout our world. The production of Lives in Transit will bring together nearly 100 accomplished filmmakers and media artists to undertake a globally-collaborative work of art that raises questions about the relationship of human connection and disconnection, similarity and difference, distance and proximity.”

Pretty sure I see a cable car operator around 1:05 in the video above. Neato!
