Portrait of a Train Driver

Posted on 4/10/2018 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

Driving a train comes with a lot of responsibilities: Bad weather, long hours, and passenger safety are all top concerns. But it also comes with some pretty stunning rewards. Meet a man who’s been driving trains through Romania’s picturesque countryside for 35 years—and who has no plans to give up this passion any time soon.

Produced by Titus-Armand Napirlica
