On the Line: THE IRON MINISTRY

Part of On The Line
Dir: J. P. Sniadecki
United States / China / 2014 / 82mins

"It’s a work of art — vivid and mysterious and full of life." - New York Times

"The best film about China in the twenty-first century that I’ve seen to date" - Artforum

Filmed over three years on China’s railways, The Iron Ministry traces the vast interiors of a country on the move: flesh and metal, clangs and squeals, light and dark, language and gesture. Scores of rail journeys come together into one, capturing the thrills and anxieties of social and technological transformation. 

From acclaimed filmmaker, J.P. Sniadecki, The Iron Ministry immerses audiences in fleeting relationships and uneasy encounters between humans and machines on what will soon be the world's largest railway network.
