It is said that in his spare time, Antonín Dvořák would go to the New York train station to admire trains. A similar kind of fascination has led me to make this short documentary movie. This film is an insight into the world of trains through the categories of rhythm and time. These categories obtain a strange meaning in this specific autonomous world in the way they affect the lives of the workers.

This film will be featured in the online edition of Ji.hlava IDFF.


Student at the Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University in Brno. Focuses on art criticism with an emphasis on photography. An avid photographer himself, František has worked as a production assistant for a number of Czech film festivals, such as the Summer Film School Uherské Hradiště and Anifilm.
