Trailerama: Last Train Home

Think travelling during Thanksgiving is rough? Try Chinese New Year. That’s when 130 million migrant workers around the country all head home to be reunited–briefly–with their families. Delays are not uncommon, and the terminals are thronged with desperate travellers. Fan Lixin‘s documentary isn’t just fixated on the spectacle of humanity, though. While accompanying a family on their journey, he also examined the hopes and fears of working class people that is on the move, even when it’s not. Planes, Trains and Automobiles was never like this. Screening at SXSW Film Festival.
