Train to Adulthood

train-to-adulthood

Directed by Klára Trencsényi / Hungary 2015 / 79 min

Train to Adulthood is a coming of age story about three children who work passionately at the Children’s Train, a small gauge railway built in 1948 by the communist leaders of Hungary. The sixty-six-year-old wagons still run every day carrying hundreds of thousands of passengers a year. Both in the communist times and today the Train has been entirely operated by the children themselves.

In the feature documentary the Children’s Train is a metaphor to talk about current day Hungary, a country not managing the political and social transition - falling from a communist regime to Orban’s “illiberal democracy”.
