CATCHING OUT features several contemporary hobos who dissent against mainstream American consumer culture by traveling for free on freight trains.
Sarah George made her directorial debut with CATCHING OUT. In 1995, she received a grant from the King County Arts Commission to make a documentary about contemporary hobos. After exploring the topic on her first trainhopping excursion, she became an enthusiastic rail rider. George spent seven years making the film and then took CATCHING OUT on tour, hopping trains between venues in North America. In the process, she has traveled over 10,000 miles by freight. A graduate of the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, George focused her studies on sustainable development and worked for a local conservation organization in Tanzania. Her documentary work continues her commitment to a sustainable future for the planet and it s people.
