PREVIEW Jack’s Ride (No táxi do Jack) + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts
July 2022
Jack's Ride (No táxi do Jack), dir. Susana Nobre, Portugal 2021, 70 min., Portuguese with English subtitles


The latest feature from Susana Nobre (Ordinary Time), Jack’s Ride is an engaging and empathetic portrait of a man navigating the end of his working life – and looking back on the events that shaped who he is today.

Joaquim (Joaquim Veríssimo Calçada, seemingly playing a version of himself) is 63 years old and just about ready to stop working for good. For arcane bureaucratic reasons, his retirement benefits depend on him enduring a brief period of unemployment during which he’s obliged to look for work. But there’s not much work around in this moribund economy, so Joaquim looks back to his time as a New York cabbie – many miles from the Portugal he once more calls home.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with director Susana Nobre.

Jack’s Ride is screening as part of Collective Mobilisation, a survey of work from contemporary Portuguese cinema co-presented by the ICA, TERRATREME and Uma Pedra no Sapato.
