TRAIN THE

UK, 2001 (MIFF 2007, Magnum In Motion)

Director: Donovan Wylie

Director Donovan Wylie will be a guest of the festival and will be introducing the first screening of The Train

Shot over nearly a year, Donovan Wylie's The Train tracks a ‘church train' over the broad, empty landscape of northern and eastern Russia. Great characters, choral singing and a notable final scene mark this document of a harsh Siberian winter.
