When you recognise the last bit of magic that winds down the film when the final pairing - the musicians - say, "Let's start tuning" and this documentary of cable car polyglossia hums with the variegated strains of generations, histories, locales and even genus to its very end. 

 

"As we built the film, we thought in terms of binary propositions: portraiture/landscape, nature/culture, man/animal, East/West, speech/ambient noise. Maybe the film makes an experiential claim that culture is a moving target, but it’s a moving target locked inside an enclosed box."
