IFI DOCFEST: IN TRANSIT

Director: ALBERT MAYSLES/LYNN TRUE/ NELSON WALKER/BEN WU/DAVID USUI

76 MINUTES, USA, 2015


This film screened on Saturday 26th  September 2015. 

IRISH PREMIERE

There will be a post-screening Q&A with Executive Director of the Maysles Documentary Center, Erika Dilday.

Documentary pioneer Albert Maysles’ wonderful final film depicts life aboard The Empire Builder, America’s busiest long-distance train route, carrying those travelling towards reunions, and those running away; people desperate for friendship, or solitude. Maysles’ trademark observational style allows these fascinating characters, the beating heart of America, to reveal themselves, while the patient, unobtrusive camerawork is occasionally distracted by the glorious countryside passing by.

This event is screening as part of IFI Documentary Festival 2015 (September 23 – 27)
