Waze Profiled by Award Winning Documentary Filmmaker



We're excited to share that Waze is the first startup spotlighted in A Total Disruption, the latest feature by two-time Sundance Film Festival winner Ondi Timoner.

Timoner (director of "Dig!," "We Live in Public,") paid a visit to our Palo Alto office recently where she spoke extensively with Diann Eisnor about how Waze has evolved into what it is today — from our founder's story, the efforts of our early community, the various phases of Waze's growth and our latest product developments.

Check out the video above to get a peek inside our U.S. operations and hear Diann discuss the measurable impact Waze has on mobility.

"If you're able to save 10 minutes a day," Eisnor says, "That's 61 hours per person per year. In a group of 20 million drivers, that's 1.2 billion hours [and] 9 billion pounds of CO2 not put into the environment."

A Total Disruption is a new channel featuring innovators and entrepreneurs who are using technology to transform our lives. You can follow them on Facebook and Twitter, too.
