Filmmaker Alison Murray drops out of the rat race, grabs a camera, and hits the rails with some other punk kids on a trans-continental freight train hopping adventure. On their odyssey they encounter a cast of hobos and runaways, scallywags and castaways. Amidst run-ins with the law, and surviving the perils of the elements, Alison weaves her narrative over beautifully shot film and video with an old-time soundtrack by Beck (think Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly). Train On The Brian was originally produced for Channel 4 in the UK, and was Alison Murray s first documentary film before directing Mouth to Mouth starring Ellen Page. ALISON MURRAY s films have been shown with the work of Harmony Korine, Paul Thomas Anderson, Michel Gondry and Atom Egoyan. MOUTH TO MOUTH (starring ELLEN PAGE) was her first feature film as a script writer and director. Alison Murray recently completed a documentary called CARNY about traveling carnival workers.
