La voie normale / As-Sekka

by Erige Sehiri New World View: Tunisia

Burned-out train carriages, loose rails, missing signalisation, accidents: line 1 of the Tunisian state railroad - once the pride of the country - has long been in a desolate state after years of mismanagement. RAILWAY MEN accompanies five train drivers, conductors and engineers in their daily struggle against the outdated infrastructure, allowing us to witness an exciting transformation process that is transferable to the whole of post-revolutionary Tunisian society. Filmmaker Erige Seghiri not only tells of incompetence and corruption, but also of dignity, resilience and new hope.
