The Kenyan matatu, the Thai tuk-tuk, and the Brooklyn dollar van are means of public transport used by people around the world. Often decorated with popular icons and sounds, matatu's offer not only a means of travel, but access to another world. MATATU replicates these vehicles as a mode of collective and publicly accessible transportation, rooted in local community and global diasporas, that shuttles audiences from one arthouse experience to the next. Almost every ride is a shoulder to shoulder experience with avant-garde music and animated conversation.
We are a collective of filmmakers, poets, writers, cartographers, musicians, and we are working from within and from without. We are storytellers. We are creative placekeepers impassioned by the belief that everyone has a spectacular story regardless of age, geographical bounds, gender, race, sexual preference, and/or socio-economic status. We believe that that story represents the sacred agreement among otherwise disparate communities.
