Last Train Home

In honor of Chinese New Year (February 5th), we are screening this universally lauded film.  Every spring, China’s 130 million migrant workers travel back to their home villages for the New Year’s holiday.  This exodus is the world’s largest human migration.  Working over several years, Director Lixin Fan travelled with a couple who embarked on these annual treks for almost two decades. The New York Times described Last Train Home as “a beautifully shot, haunting and haunted large scale portrait.”
