Chris Eden-Green has been producing films about steam trains since 2012, with fans regarding them as ‘ Top Gear  for steam’. With friends Sam and Adam he drives from Kent to the Netherlands, then on to Germany, where they are challenged by the weather and unfamiliar timetables at Brocken Mountain, in the beautiful Harz National Park in Saxony, as they try to capture on film some magnificent steam trains - if only the damned weather would behave itself! This very affectionate documentary will charm anyone who has ever admired these magnificent machines, and those who seek to record them for posterity. 

 

Introduced by participant Sam Brown

 

Plus short film Perfect Baby, introduced by director Paul Rodriguez

 

Set in a dystopian present, Jason and Emily Walker want to have a baby, but the government has strict rules that present them with challenges. The process is revealing, but not in the way they expected.

 

Written & Directed by Paul Rodriguez, Stars Tawny Fontana and Marek Platek
