Martin DiCicco / Feature Documentary / United States of America, Georgia, Qatar / 69 min / Original Language: Armenian, Azerbaijani, Russian / Interests: Creative Documentary


Amid the attempt to revive a ‘new Silk Road’ between Europe and Asia, Azerbaijani men labour to build a new railroad that promises to bring glory to a new generation. Across closed borders in Armenia, a lonely stationmaster sits idle in suspended time, waiting for 25 years for the return of trains. A journey by rail, where men reflect upon desire and regret, floating through a Eurasian expanse, striving to fill their days and dreams, as much as their pockets.
