Editorial Reviews

A Documentary by Nick Tomizawa.

Invented and first used in San Francisco, the cable cars were a ubiquitous form of transportation around the world, only to soon be supplanted by the electric streetcar. Today, once again, San Francisco is the only place in the world you will see these cars out on the road.

What is it like to operate a cable car? Who are the people that run the cable car system? Why do these men and women call themselves a "family"? And what are the ties and traditions that bind them to each other, and to those who came before them?

The Feel of the Rope is a tribute to the men and women who carry on a San Francisco tradition that has continued for over 130 years. Through the words of employees past and present representing two generations of operators, managers, maintainers, trainers, and car builders, you will get an insider's look at what makes the cable cars the most unique transit system in the world.

Video photo album and additional clips included.
